The Department of Biomedical Data Science* (DBDS) at Stanford was started in order to create an integrated field of biomedical data science, to recruit emerging talent, to provide outstanding training to postdoctoral scholars and graduate students working in this area, and to provide and cultivate an intellectual home for collaborative research.  As a basic science department, DBDS is devoted to the development of methods for learning from biomedical data, managing those data, and using the data to inform discovery. Our research will create novel computational and statistical methods for acquiring, representing, storing, and analyzing biological and clinical data at all scales.
