Consultation and Services
Enormous volumes of molecular and clinical data are continually being generated and there is a tremendous need for both bioinformatics data analysis and databases that can integrate and store large volumes of disparate data types help scientists make sense of this data. Biomedical informatics is helping to address these challenges toward the goal of alleviating human suffering.
ICBI is a research group of data scientists within Georgetown University Medical Center that does biomedical informatics research and provides support to Georgetown faculty and staff in the numerous areas related to translational research.
Simina Boca, PhD
Dr. Simina Boca, a biostatistician with expertise in bioinformatics research, joined ICBI as the newest faculty member in the spring of 2014. Her research primarily focuses on the development of methods and tools for the analysis of "omics" data, including genomics and metabolomics, especially as they relate to cancer. Further areas of substantive interest include cancer epidemiology and population genetics. Read what she has to say about her research at the intersection of biostatistics and bioinformatics.
