Translational Bioinformatics is the development of storage, analytic, and interpretive methods to optimize the transformation of increasingly voluminous biomedical data, and genomic data, into proactive, predictive, preventive, and participatory health. Translational bioinformatics includes research on the development of novel techniques for the integration of biological and clinical data and the evolution of clinical informatics methodology to encompass biological observations. The end product of translational bioinformatics is newly found knowledge from these integrative efforts that can be disseminated to a variety of stakeholders, including biomedical scientists, clinicians, and patients.
Working Groups & Communities
AMIA membership includes participation in related working groups and communities focused on TBI including the Genomics Working Group.
Meetings & Events
Each year, AMIA hosts the Joint Summits which serve as the primary forum to connect with leaders in the field of informatics who are advancing translational science at the nexus of bioinformatics and clinical research. The theme of the 2016 Joint Summits is accelerating precision medicine and patient-centered outcomes research through discovery, development and delivery.
AMIA offers virtual distance learning informatics training through 10x10 courses presented by university partners. More than 35,000 CE credits have been granted through the 10x10 program.
Stanford University offers an introductory course on relevant topics.
