The Center for Biomedical Informatics at Charles R Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) was founded in 2007 as the academic home for researchers active in this important scientific and professional field and to bolster the university’s research, educational and service capacity in this broad domain. 

Biomedical Informatics is the integrative discipline that arises from the synergistic application of computational, informational, cognitive, organizational and other sciences whose primary focus is the acquisition, storage and use of information in the health/biomedical domain.  (William Hersh, Oregon Health and Sciences University)

The Center for Biomedical Informatics realizes this vision through its active research programs; its service to CDU and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles; and its educational endeavors.  With a focus on clinical informatics, the Center has significant expertise in telehealth, machine learning, predictive modeling, sociotechnical analysis, electronic health record systems, registries, health information technology standards and geographical information systems (GIS).
