Clinical bioinformatics (physical sciences)

Clinical bioinformatics combines computer science, statistics, mathematics, and engineering to study and process biological data.

Working within the physical sciences of bioinformatics, you’ll be furthering knowledge and building the future by designing the equipment, software and algorithms that process clinical and genetic data.


Bioinformatics in physical sciences is closely allied to computer science as it involves computer programming, network topologies, ensuring that standards are met and database design.

You’ll work as a clinical scientist, most likely within a medical physics or clinical engineering department or specialty, where your role will primarily involve working with medical equipment.
