PhD BMI Sackler Application

Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics

Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is a field in which individuals create and apply computational and quantitative methods for biomedical research and healthcare. The recent explosion of high-throughput genomics technologies has created a critical demand for skilled BMI professionals.

The Biomedical Informatics Master of Science (BMI MS) program at NYU Sackler Institute of Biomedical Sciences consists of three interconnected components:

  • Biomedical Informatics focused on computational and statistical methods for the analysis of molecular biology data.
  • Medical Informatics aim to teach storage and management of medical data and knowledge and evidence-driven application to patient therapies.
  • Translational Bioinformatics that connects Biomedical Informatics with Medical Informatics in order to transfer results "from the bench to the bedside."
