Informatics Innovation Lab
The University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI) created The Informatics Innovation (I2) Lab in response to increased demand for informatics-related assistance from the health industry and research partners. At the I2 Lab, graduate-level students, our world-renowned SBMI faculty and corporate and nonprofit partners collaborate to develop cutting-edge technology solutions to real-world informatics problems.
The Convergence of Multiple Disciplines
Mirroring the health informatics field, the I2 Lab intersects with many disciplines and domains: medicine, biology, chemistry, computer science, applied mathematics, electrical engineering, bioengineering, psychology, and decision theory. SBMI brings together students and faculty from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common: they are all focused on data.
I2 Lab Features
- Faculty-supervised teams of informatics graduate students engaged to work on real-world health informatics challenges
- An interdisciplinary approach to each challenge
- Student/faculty/industry incubator space that fosters innovation in the field of informatics
- Advice, guidance, and deliverables for health information technology companies, health service providers, and corporations
- Opportunities for graduate students to complete a 16-week practicum experience for course credit that provides elegant solutions for I2 Lab sponsors
