NLM Awards Over $75M in Biomedical Informatics Training Grants

Continuing a 30-year tradition of sponsoring biomedical informatics research training, in November the National Library of Medicine awarded 18 grants totaling more than $75 million to a programmatically diverse group of physicians, biologists, computer scientists and engineers from around the country. The Biomedical Informatics Program, which seeks to apply computer and communications technology to improve clinical medicine, basic biomedical research, clinical and translational research, and public health, requires knowledge of biology and medicine as well as of computer and information sciences, engineering and human behavior.
