To meet the aims of our school we have identified four research areas for collaboration between medicine and informatics and related sciences, which are closely intertwined. No order of importance implied, these areas, which are complemented by our structured interdisciplinary education, are:

  • Bioinformatics and systems biology: The goal of bioinformatics is to understand molecular mechanisms, their genetic framework for diseases and their responsiveness to therapy using advanced information technology.

  • Informatics for biomedical engineering (BME): There are various relevant informatics-related aspects of biomedical engineering and biomedical physics such as bio-signal and image processing, robotics, sensors, biomedical imaging, modeling and simulation of biophysical processes, adaption of models to treatment strategies, and also analysis of clinical outcomes.

  • Health informatics and eHealth: eHealth covers the whole range of use of information and communication within the health sector, focusing on individual citizens and patients. eHealth is one of the core application areas of health informatics which addresses biomedical and health information discovery and management, technology, science and their social/ethical implications.

  • Public health informatics and public health: Public Health combines science and technologies directed to maintaining and improving the health of all people, emphasizing prevention and basic health needs of the population as a whole and managing care given the constraints of our health care systems. While health informatics is mainly oriented towards individual healthcare, public health informatics is mainly oriented towards population measures and health policy.
