BISEL

Biomedical Informatics Systems Engineering Laboratory


BISEL focuses on issues that arise from bringing to bear the latest computer science developments in the context of biomedical research.



Work in the lab, covers the whole of the spectrum of biomedical informatics from the biologists using bioinformatics tools in their research through to computer scientists developing theories and technologies for application on problems in the biomedical domain. The laboratory places great importance on the knowledge transfer of computational theories and technologies into usable biomedical informatics tools.
