Department of Biomedical Informatics
The mission of the Vanderbilt Department of Biomedical informatics has complementary themes that include education, research, service, and a commitment to our colleagues in our own institution and around the world.
To educate undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate trainees in the theory and practice of biomedical informatics;
Research and Service missions:
To develop and evaluate innovative technologies for the storage, retrieval, dissemination, and application of biomedical knowledge, in order to support clinical practice, biomedical research, life-long learning, and administration and as a result, to contribute to the professional body of knowledge in the field of biomedical informatics;
Professional and Ethical:
To maintain cooperation and collegiality with all those who learn and work with us locally, nationally, and internationally; and, to develop and disseminate ethical and professional standards for the conduct of biomedical informatics research and for the use and evaluation of health care informatics applications.

(Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, 2019-10)Objective: The study sought to determine availability and use of structured override reasons for drug-drug interaction (DDI) alerts in electronic health records. Materials and Methods: We collected data on DDI alerts ...
(JMIR Medical Informatics, 2019)Background: The phecode system was built upon the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) for phenome-wide association studies (PheWAS) using the electronic health record ...
(JCO CLINICAL CANCER INFORMATICS, 2019-06-21)In this work, we present a conceptual framework to support clinical trial optimization and enrollment workflows and review the current state, limitations, and future trends in this space. This framework includes knowledge ...
Significant and Distinctive n-Grams in Oncology Notes: A Text-Mining Method to Analyze the Effect of OpenNotes on Clinical Documentation (JCO Clinical Cancer Informatics, 2019-06-11)PURPOSE OpenNotes is a national movement established in 2010 that gives patients access to their visit notes through online patient portals, and its goal is to improve transparency and communication. To determine whether ...
(Vanderbilt University, 2008-08-13)The paper briefly describes the construction of self organizing nanoparticles that can be designed to detect and record arbitrary intracellular events. The basic design captures nucleic acids. The design utilizes a single ...
(Vanderbilt University, 2008-08-05)Yeast are an important eukaryotic model system in the study of aging. Replicative age in budding yeast can be quantitatively determined by visualizing chitanous bud scars. The dynamics of the process of growth and division ...
Next-generation quantitative measurements to validate a model for yeast nitrogen catabolite repression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Vanderbilt UniversityVanderbilt University, 2007-02-12)Our work is motivated by the desire to quantitatively measure biological dynamical systems. Our agenda is to describe and understand emergent behavior and to explain the observed super robustness of biological dynamics. ...
(Vanderbilt University, 2006-09-12)The density profile of an elastic fiber like DNA will change in space and time as ligands associate with it. This observation affords a new direction in single molecule studies provided that density profiles can be ...
