DBMI will be moving to the top floor of the new Biomedical Research Building in early 2014 and we plan to organize a celebration in situ. More details will come soon.
DBMI was represented in the 1st International Conference of Africa Build, a project funded by the European Commission to improve information and communication technologies for health in four African countries. At the invite of Prof. Maojo from Madrid, we presented our work in building capacity in biomedical and health informatics in Mozambique. We also represented DBMI in the 4e. Journees Cameronaises d'Informatique Medicale sponsored by the Cameroonian Health Informatics Society in Yaonde, Cameroon.
Fifteen delegates represented UCSD DBMI at the AMIA 2013 Symposium from November 16-20th at the Hilton Washington in Washington, DC. Click here to see the list of DBMI papers, panels, posters, and presentations. Edna Shenvi, Eric Levy, and Jing Zhang were finalists in the new student design competition. Mindy Ross led a DBMI team to win a distinguished poster award describing work developed under the course Data Modeling taught by Hyeon-eui Kim.
Chun-nan Hsu, PhD, was appointed Associate Professor in DBMI in November. Formerly at USC-ISI, Dr. Hsu is a computer scientist who is a senior member of the ACM and specializes in text mining related to genomics and proteomics. He is a member of the Academia Sinica and leads an NHGRI-funded program project for automated curation of GWAS.
Two delegates represented DBMI at the 3rd Translational Bioinformatics Conference in Seoul, Korea. Two papers led by Shuang Wang and Zhanglong Ji were selected for journal submissions.
We welcome our new graduate students: Zachary Lipton, Shamim Mollah, Kemal Eren, Stephanie Feudjio Feupe. We also thank our summer interns for their hard work and amazing presentations in our Summer Internship Workshop. We wish them all the success in completing their studies. View the videos of their presentations here.
DBMI has open positions for postdocs. For faculty positions, please send inquiries to dbmi-admin @ ucsd.edu.
UCSD has a biomedical informatics training grant from the NIH (National Library of Medicine).
The grant supports a total of 15 trainees in UCSD degree programs. Click here for more Graduate Program Information.
