What is Biomedical Computing?
Biomedical computing combines the diagnostic and investigative aspects of biology and medical science with the sheer power and problem-solving capabilities of modern computing. In this new rapidly-evolving discipline, computers are used to accelerate research progress, stimulate patient behavior and visualize complex biological models. They shorten the cycles for medical research, just as they extend their boundaries. Biomedical computing goes far beyond simply bringing computers into the lab. At its root, it represents the integration of a new way of thinking into the traditional practice of medicine and life science.
