There’s power and impact in large-scale computing and data analysis. Through the Stanford Biomedical Data Science Initiative, we are delving into every aspect of health and disease, from the molecular mechanics of individual cells to the behavioral dynamics of entire populations.
Our vision is to integrate genomics and other “omic” data into everyday care by adding it to medical records to deepen our understanding of a patient’s biology.
Already, we’re using mobile data to give physicians and researchers real-time information that evolves over time for patients.
Recently, we have begun nurturing a new breed of scientist who will amplify the potential of biomedical data—experts with the talent and training to work at the intersection of the life and quantitative sciences.
