Institute for Computational Medicine

We apply computational tools to solve biomedical challenges.

The Institute for Computational Medicine at NYU Langone Health leverages data-driven analyses to make discoveries on the structure, function, and evolution of complex and dynamic biological systems.

We recruit principal investigators who are collaborative, are focused on pressing biomedical problems, and are adept at both experimental and computational methods. Our areas of study include cancer biology, host–pathogen interactions, and population health, and extend to any topic in the biomedical sciences where data-driven approaches promise to lead to exciting biological insights.

The institute’s location within NYU Langone’s Science Building allows our researchers to collaborate with scientists from a variety of disciplines in our state-of-the-art facilities. Our scientists also teach courses within the Computational Biomedicine PhD Training Program at NYU Langone’s Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences.
