Clinical Research Data Warehouse

The Clinical Research Data Warehouse is a research data repository that provides a single, secure, managed release point for human subjects’ data for use in research. Managed by the Biomedical Informatics Core, it not only serves as a mechanism for accessing clinical data from UI Health, but also from other institutions and sources, including public data repositories.

The Biomedical Informatics Core's efforts continue to grow the data warehouse through in-cooperating additional datasets, which will support research along a broad continuum from basic to translational to population health research.

Researchers can request data extracts from the Clinical Research Data Warehouse by submitting an online service request for Biomedical Informatics support.

Biomedical Health Informatics Colloquia (BHIC)

UIC has a diverse and robust health informatics teaching and research portfolio, but there is often an overall lack of awareness of other researchers working in health informatics as well as resources and sources of collaboration. The purpose of the colloquia is two-fold: to provide a forum for presenting current & ongoing research and to help connect researchers with one another. Monthly meetings are generally structured such that the first half of the meeting features a presentation of actual or proposed research UIC, and the second half of the meeting is to explore opportunities for collaboration through future grant funding. Because informatics is so extraordinarily broad and diverse, the colloquia aims to help researchers at UIC keep a pulse on activities outside of their immediate research interest and help to spur additional collaborations.

The colloquia usually occurs on the last Monday of the month during the Academic Calendar year at noon in Room 6175 COMRB (909 S. Wolcott). For more information, contact Andrew Boyd at

Chicago Biomedical Consortium

The mission of the Chicago Biomedical Consortium is to stimulate collaboration among scientists at Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago that will transform research at the frontiers of biomedicine.
