We were awarded a 4-year grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute to develop "A Risk Management Framework for Identifiability in Genomics Research". This is a collaborative project with Ellen Wright Clayton and Murat Kantarciolgu (at the University of Texas at Dallas). The lab is actively soliciting enterprising graduate students and/or post-docs to join the laboratory!
The Health Information Privacy Laboratory (HIPLAB) at Vanderbilt University was founded to address the growing needs for privacy technology research and development for the emerging health information technologies sector. The goal of the HIPLAB is to improve the protection of patients' privacy in health information systems. The HIPLAB is based in the Department of Biomedical Informatics, in the School of Medicine, and has relationships with various departments around the university and beyond.
The HIPLAB performs basic, as well as, applied research in a number of health-related areas, including primary care and secondary sharing of patient-specific data for research purposes. Projects in the HIPLAB are multi-faceted and draw upon methodologies in computer science, the biomedical sciences, and public policy.
We aim to improve the standard of healthcare and health information systems by developing technologies that enabling trust.
