Biomedical Informatics and Data Science (BIDS) at Yale University is a newly established self-standing Section that is expected, in the short-term, to grow into a Department within Yale School of Medicine, which has a rich history of pre-eminence in biomedical research and clinical care. BIDS faculty are known nationally and internationally for their contributions to biomedical informatics and data science and multidisciplinary collaborations. Today, research at the Yale School of Medicine encompasses a broad range of fields, with researchers aiming to understand, prevent, and treat human disease in a personalized and equitable manner. Yale’s new findings in basic and translational science inform and synergize with impactful clinical research, and with implementation and evaluation of systems in real clinical settings.
