Biomedical Research Informatics Core Laboratory (BIDMC)

Location: 107 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA 02115

Core Summary:

"The mission of the Biomedical Research Informatics Core (BRIC) is to utilize the expertise of BIDMC 'informaticians' with backgrounds in medicine, biology, engineering, biostatistics, and computer science to facilitate research at our institution by (a) providing a high level of service and experience in informatics that is difficult for individual laboratories to achieve and maintain, (b) developing the infrastructure required to address common informatics needs of all researchers, and (c) identifying areas in which there can be closer collaboration among life scientists and quantitative scientists."
