Healthier from the Start

Curiosity about the world—it’s one thing that brings all informaticians together. For Neil Sarkar, PhD, MLIS, FACMI, Director, The Brown Center for Biomedical Informatics, Associate Professor of Medical Science and Associate Professor of Health Services, Policy and Practice, this lifelong curiosity blossomed into a career in pioneering research within biomedical informatics.  

That’s why Neil is using informatics to understand more completely the impact of spontaneous preterm birth and to develop better predictors for why it happens--ultimately, reducing neonatal morbidity and mortality worldwide.

Why Informatics? So, we are able to make people’s lives better and healthier right from the start.
