Advancing Science

The CCMB is a university-wide interdisciplinary academic center and a leader in the entire spectrum of biomedical informatics disciplines.

Interdisciplinary Research in Bioinformatics, Biomedical Data Science, and Translational Precision Health Informatics 

The Center for Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics (CCMB) provides a collaborative structure for interdisciplinary research in biomedical informatics. CCMB members are experts in a variety of disciplines including bioinformatics, biomedical data science, and translational precision health informatics.

CCMB members are experts across schools, departments, and areas of research. 

The 130+ faculty members affiliated with CCMB come from different U-M schools and colleges (Medical School, College of Engineering (COE), College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA), College of Pharmacy, School of Public Health, and School of Information). 

About half of the faculty of CCMB study mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, bioinformatics, and biostatistics, with a focus on the theoretical foundation and methodology of bioinformatics. The other half applies cutting-edge biomedical informatics in their research and are based in the biological sciences, chemistry, psychology, and basic science and clinical departments in the U-M Medical School. 

CCMB faculty members are available to co-mentor graduate students in DCMB’s Bioinformatics Graduate Program (BGP).

With DCMB, CCMB offers a weekly Bioinformatics Seminar Series, during Fall and Winter Terms. CCMB is coordinated by DCMB.
