Consultation and Services
Enormous volumes of molecular and clinical data are continually being generated and there is a tremendous need for both bioinformatics data analysis and databases that can integrate and store large volumes of disparate data types help scientists make sense of this data. Biomedical informatics is helping to address these challenges toward the goal of alleviating human suffering.
ICBI is a research group of data scientists within Georgetown University Medical Center that does biomedical informatics research and provides support to Georgetown faculty and staff in the numerous areas related to translational research.
Robert Beckman, MD
We are extremely pleased to welcome Dr. Robert Beckman, M.D., an accomplished clinical oncology researcher and mathematical biologist, as a new faculty member of ICBI. Dr. Beckman is Professor of Oncology and of Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, and Biomathematics at Georgetown University Medical Center. Dr. Beckman has led the development of new oncology clinical research groups in numerous industrial settings (e.g. Glaxo Smithkline; Merck; Centocor, Inc; Daiichi Sankyo Pharmaceuticals; and others), which has enabled the development of over 25 small molecule and macromolecular therapeutics for clinical testing. Two of these molecules are now available in the market: Hycamtin® for small cell lung cancer, and Astra Zeneca's Casodex® for adjuvant therapy of prostate cancer.
