Washington University has created the Institute for Informatics (I2) to provide an academic and professional home for informatics science and practice.

Informatics is the use of data-centric approaches to solve complex problems. Informatics offers a way to harness and manage big data, leading to a number of benefits including an accelerated rate of scientific discovery, improved clinical decision making and the ability to promote healthy behaviors at a population level. The Institute for Informatics uses this data to transform research, education and patient care.

Areas of Focus

  • Translational bioinformatics
  • Learning healthcare systems
  • Population health informatics

Acces the Tools You Need

From consultations to cutting-edge software, researchers partnering with I2 can benefit from an array of data-mining technologies.
