Research is integral to the Personal Health Informatics doctoral degree, as students and faculty work together to find impactful solutions to today’s health and wellness challenges. The transition from centralized, provider-centric treatment to personalized, patient-focused care requires researchers to cross the boundaries of public health, medicine, and social and computer sciences—which in turn prepares students for excellence in a specific research area of personal health informatics. It is this transdisciplinary experience that sets the program apart.

Prospective students are encouraged to contact PHI faculty and inquire about specific projects and research interests. New projects are always in development.
