Department of Systems Medicine & Bioengineering
Since the department’s inception in 2011, our scientists and engineers have been at the forefront of systems medicine. Our work has led to clinical trials for a new medical imaging device and several repositioned drugs, as well as an enterprise clinical data warehouse with analytic solutions for quality improvement, outcomes research and coordinated care. Our work at SMAB has resulted in new approaches and methods in several areas of basic research and medical treatment including systems biology, informatics, cancer (specifically imaging and bioengineering), neurology, diabetes and orphan diseases.
