The Center for Health-related Bioinformatics and Imaging (CHIB) will pursue a comprehensive vision of health care, ranging from fundamental science in the laboratory to patient care in hospitals and in homes–all supported by the latest technological advances.

CHIB will investigate novel approaches for understanding massive amounts of biological, medical, behavioral and health data, including genomics, imaging and electronic health records.

Partnering with other centers and institutes at the College Park and Baltimore campuses–as well as government labs, regional biotech and biomedical startups and others–CHIB's goal is to advance discoveries that can rapidly move from the laboratory, to therapeutics, to patient care.
