Welcome to the Johns Hopkins Institute for Computational Medicine. Our mission is to develop quantitative computer models of human disease, personalize these models using data from individual patients, and apply them to improve disease diagnosis and treatment.
ICM research includes cardiovascular disease, cancer, HIV/AIDS and other immune system disorders, neurological disorders, infectious disease, neuro-developmental disorders and neuro-psychiatric disease.
The multi-disciplinary nature of research in ICM means that our core faculty come from many departments of the Schools of Medicine and Engineering. In the Whiting School of Engineering these are the Departments of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering. In the School of Medicine, these are the Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Emergency Medicine, and Neurosurgery.
