Biomedical Natural Language Processing Lab

Our Lab

In the Biomedical Language Processing Laboratory, we develop and implement Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning algorithms to retrieve, extract and summarize information from biomedical texts such as literature, Electronic Health Records (EHR) and online health websites.

Our mission is to:

  • Improve health care outcomes by enabling secondary uses of the data
  • Create advanced algorithms designed to enhance the functionality of clinical knowledge systems
