Ohio State University Wins Five-Year NLM Fellowship for Biomedical Informatics

Premium

Ohio State University's biomedical informatics department has received a five-year training fellowship from the National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine, which the institution will use to recruit and teach biomedical informatics professionals.

Specifically, Ohio State's Clinical and Translational Research Informatics Training Program, CTRIP, will use the funds to "focus on the training of pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students in the biomedical informatics sub-domains of translational bioinformatics and clinical research informatics," Peter Embi, co-director of CTRIP, said in a statement.

Faculty from across the campus will serve as mentors for students in the CTRIP program, OSU said.

“By focusing exclusively on the training of a TBI and CRI academic and professional workforce ... our graduates will be ideally positioned to lead advancements in biomedical knowledge and the delivery of clinical care informed by the best possible science, ultimately improving the outcomes, quality, safety and cost-effectiveness of healthcare delivery,” Philip Payne, CTRIP co-director and chairman of Ohio State’s biomedical informatics department, said.

OSU did not disclose the amount of funding it received, but it is one of 14 five-year grants awarded under the NLM program, totaling more than $67 million.
