Dr. Tiffani Bright, Ph.D., is the Biomedical Informatician Evaluation Team Lead at IBM Watson Health. As she describes it, the field of Biomedical Informatics sits right at the middle of a three-part Venn diagram, where computational sciences, health/life sciences, and social sciences overlap. Dr. Bright is currently working to advance the science of AI and its application to major public health issues, in collaboration with Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and Vanderbilt University.
Tiffani’s studies have been extensive and have led her to this fascinating, growing field that combines data and biology to advance the ways healthcare is delivered. In this episode, she shares the story of how she arrived to this point, achieving degree after degree and receiving award after award along the way.
Tiffani is the recipient of several awards and honors, including a Meyerhoff Scholarship from the University of Maryland Baltimore County, a National Library of Medicine Biomedical Informatics Pre-doctoral Fellowship, and a Columbia University Center for Interdisciplinary Research to Reduce Antimicrobial Resistance Pre-doctoral Fellowship. She is also a board member of the American Medical Informatics Association.
