Warren Kibbe, NCI, Director of Center for Biomedical Informatics Technology
Warren A. Kibbe, Ph.D., is the director of the Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) at the NCI. NCI created CBIIT to lead the coordination, development, and deployment of enterprise-wide digital capabilities (including biomedical informatics, scientific-management information systems, and computing resources) in support of the Institute's initiatives. Through CBIIT, NCI is helping to speed scientific discovery and facilitate translational research by using IT, informatics and Data Science to address complex research challenges. The ability to manage and analyze diverse, and often extremely large, collections of data - whether high-throughput genomics data, clinical data, or annotated medical images - in an integrated fashion is increasingly indispensable.
