Meet the Computational Life Sciences Seminar Series

By | News | No Comments

In October, the Center for Research Informatics and the Graham School MSc in Biomedical Informatics program jointly launched a new monthly speaker series, the Computational Life Science Seminar Series (CLSSS). The CLSSS was created to bring together researchers from all life sciences fields and offer a forum to highlight new research and foster collaborations. The format is flexible and sessions are open to faculty, students, and researchers throughout the University of Chicago community.

Thus far, the series has hosted speakers from the Center for Data Intensive Science to showcase data commons initiatives, as well as from the Research Computing Center to present their XROMM data management system (read a recap of this session here). The next seminar, scheduled for January 25, will present research currently underway in Jack Gilbert’s laboratory looking at how genomics of the microbiome might be connected to health and obesity outcomes. Register here, and join the mailing list to stay informed about future CLSSS sessions.

CRI and Graham School Offer Online Healthcare Informatics Course

By | News | No Comments

The Graham School MSc in Biomedical Informatics program has partnered with online education company GetSmarter to offer an 8-week online course in Healthcare Informatics. CRI Director Sam Volchenboum serves as Course Convener, guiding the course design and teaching some of the modules alongside other University experts. The online course was developed in order to bring the University of Chicago’s expertise in healthcare informatics to a worldwide audience, preparing students to enter a field that is becoming more complex and demanding by the year as more and more healthcare data is made available to study. Learn more about why we’re offering this course here. The next session begins February 28.

MScBMI Students Present Capstones

By | News | No Comments

The 2017 cohort of the Graham School Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics program, which is supported and partially taught by the Center for Research Informatics, presented their capstone research projects this month in the program’s third annual Capstone Showcase. The eight projects featured a wide range of topics and approaches to informatics research. Read more about the capstones here.
