Biomedical Informatics

Program Description

The MS in biomedical informatics at NYU Langone’s Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences and NYU Grossman School of Medicine is a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) program that sharpens students’ practical skills in basic science, translational science, and medical research. Our 12-month curriculum, which can be completed on a part-time basis, produces professionals who can solve challenging biomedical problems.

Students pursuing a master’s degree in biomedical informatics will learn to create novel computational and quantitative methods and apply them to biomedical research. The vibrant scientific research community at NYU Langone and NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers the chance to work with nationally and internationally recognized faculty researchers in our laboratories, institutes, and departments. Students will also have access to our in-house high-performance computing facility.

The rapidly growing field of bioinformatics has influenced many recent healthcare developments, including new opportunities for personalized medicine. These innovations, along with a recent growth in high-throughput genomics technologies, have created a demand for skilled bioinformatics professionals.
