NLM's Intramural Research Program
Under the leadership of NLM’s Scientific Director, the Computational Biology Branch and the Computational Health Research Branch develop and apply computational approaches to a broad range of problems in biomedicine, molecular biology and health.
The NLM IRP also provides exciting training and research opportunities for future computational health and bioinformatics leaders.
NLM’s current research emphases lie in two areas. In computational health research, the focus includes natural language processing, clinical image processing, biomedical ontologies and information models, and clinical analytics. In computational biology research, topics include transcription, chromatin and networks; structure and function; sequence statistics; and evolutionary genomics.
