Biomedical Research Informatics Core

The Biomedical Research Informatics Core (BRIC) was established at Michigan State University (MSU) in 2001. With the creation of the MSU Clinical and Translational Science Institute (MSU-CTSI) in August, 2008, the governance of BRIC was placed within the MSU-CTSI as part of its cross-cutting key research core. BRIC’s mission is to provide high-level informatics and information technology support to clinical and translational researchers. Having a mature foundation and solid reputation for performance makes implementation of planned new initiatives straight forward and orderly.  Dr. Philip L. Reed, PhD, is the full-time BRIC director.
