​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ About BISTI

The Biomedical Information Science and Technology Initiative is a consortium of representatives from each of the NIH institutes and centers. BISTI was established in May 2000 to serve as the focus of biomedical computing issues at the NIH.

The mission of BISTI is to make optimal use of computer science and technology to address problems in biology and medicine by fostering new basic understandings, collaborations, and transdisciplinary initiatives between the computational and biomedical sciences.

In support of this mission, the BISTI coordinates research grants, training opportunities, and scientific symposia associated with biomedical computing. Regular monthly meetings are conducted to discuss program status, future needs and directions, and topics of interest to the bioinformatics c ommunity.
