About Us

The mission of the Department of Biomedical Informatics of Stony Brook University is to advance biomedical knowledge through innovative data science education and research.

The Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is the home of biomedical data science research and education at Stony Brook University.  We train and prepare students and postdoctoral researchers to become leaders in the field.  Established in 2013 with a commitment of substantial resources funded through the Simons Gift and Simons Foundation endowments, coupled with SUNY 2020 grants, BMI is a key element of Stony Brook’s strategic plan.  As we train the next generation of data scientists, we deliver innovative informatics research and applications to enhance scientific knowledge and healthcare delivery. 

Our interdisciplinary faculty, students, and data scientist staff conduct cutting-edge research in a wide range of areas including Clinical Informatics, Translational Informatics, Imaging Informatics, Pathology Informatics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Science.  Stony Brook Medicine inspires and engages us to drive the development of concepts, methods, and tools to help fulfill its mission to deliver world-class, compassionate care to patients.
