Biological & Medical Informatics Research Center


Ever wondered what it takes to discover a new drug, or to understand the underlying mechanism of a disease? It takes chemistry and biology, but it also takes computer science. The complexity of biological systems and vast amounts of data that new technologies produce require extensive computer skills.

Today, there is an acute need for graduates with just such a multidisciplinary background, both in academia and in industry. In industry, this need extends beyond biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and health care sectors, and is felt in such areas as homeland security and information technology.
