Center for Health-related Informatics and Bioimaging

Our Mission

The Center for Health-related Informatics and Bioimaging (CHIB) is a multidisciplinary effort to address grand challenges in genomic research, medical information management and precision medicine in key areas like Parkinson’s disease, cancer, autism and diabetes. CHIB combines advanced computing resources at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) with clinical data and biomedical expertise at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). Our research faculty, clinicians and technical staff from these two institutions—which together bring in more than $1 billion per year in research funding—are committed to revolutionizing the efficiency and effectiveness of health care in the state of Maryland and beyond.
