Since 2011, the Center for Research Informatics (CRI) has advanced the forefront of biomedical and biological sciences at the University of Chicago and beyond.
We offer researchers state-of-the-art technologies for working with data—from acquisition and storage to analysis and sharing. Our 35+ member staff has expertise in clinical data analytics, machine learning, natural language processing, software engineering, and genomic analysis. Recent projects have included designing predictive models of adverse clinical events, developing a clinical trials management software system, and creating custom genomics pipelines. Our team built and now manages one of the largest research-based clinical data warehouses in the country, along with an infrastructure environment that supports high performance computing, compliant storage, and virtualization.
As well as working on world-class research at UChicago, we collaborate on major multi-institutional projects that are changing the face of healthcare and data science. Our work also extends into the private sector, where we support both mature and start-up firms with expert consulting on clinical and genomic data analysis. In addition, we are committed to creating opportunities for informatics education.
We hope you’ll take a look around and consider making the CRI your research partner. If you have any questions or want to talk more about a project, whether it’s BSD research or an outside initiative, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
