Project Presentation and Summary
INBIOMEDvision aims to become a European-wide initiative intended to monitor the evolution of the Biomedical Informatics field and address its scientific challenges by means of collaborative efforts performed by a broad group of experts with complementary perspectives on the field.
The project will:
- Generate a permanently updated and electronically accessible catalogue of initiatives and resources in the field.
- Publish and distribute an electronic newsletter on Biomedical Informatics.
- Produce periodic state-of-the-art reviews on the matter.
- Execute prospective analyses on Biomedical Informatics.
- Organise and carry out community building activities (web page, scientific events and training activities).
The community building activities, scientific events and training activities will proactively seek the involvement of participants from different communities. The project will intensively collaborate with the current projects and initiatives in Biomedical Informatics and related fields.
Many relevant European scientists that have a key role in other Biomedical Informatics initiatives are involved in project activities as INBIOMEDvision Members, and will be invited to take part inthe project activities.
The creation of an Overseas Scientific Advisory Board formed by highly recognised scientists guarantees the connection between the initiatives on Biomedical Informatics world wide.
Training and dissemination activities will contribute to build bridges between the Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics communities and will help facilitate the translation of knowledge from the biomedical research laboratory to the clinic, and vice versa.
Expected Results & Impacts
INBIOMEDvision aims at:
- Setting up an observatory on the achievements and evolution of the Biomedical Informatics field, which will contribute to a more intense and coordinated development of this discipline.
- Facilitating the development of a translational Bioinformatics perspective allowing a better application of the biomedical research results to the clinical research and practice.
- Facilitating the re-use of clinical information in basic biomedical research.
- Overcoming barriers of communication between the scientists working on Bioinformatics and those devoted to Medical Informatics.
- Constituting a useful tool to emphasize the integrative and translational perspective underlying the Biomedical Informatics continuum, including the connections that should exist among Public Health Informatics,Clinical Informatics, Medical Imaging, Systems Biology and Bioinformatics areas.
