Research Interests

Under the direction of Dr. Mia K. Markey, the mission of the Biomedical Informatics Lab (BMIL) is to design decision support systems for clinical decision making and scientific discovery. The BMIL seeks opportunities to advance health-related quality of life and health equity. For example, a current project seeks to develop a decision support system that will enable breast cancer patients, in consultation with their healthcare providers, to choose a reconstruction strategy with maximal potential to optimize psychosocial adjustment.
