Das joined Dartmouth in May 2012 as Director of Biomedical Informatics,
and is leading a new academic center at the Geisel School of Medicine,
called the Collaboratory for Healthcare and Biomedical Informatics, or
simply, the Informatics Collaboratory. He is also Director of the
SYNERGY Biomedical Informatics Core and a member of the Institute for
Quantitative Biomedical Sciences and the Norris-Cotton Cancer
Center. See Dartmouth Faculty Profile. Read more.
Das received his BA in Anthropology and the Program in Mathematical
Methods in the Social Sciences from Northwestern University and his MD
and PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Stanford University. He
completed a research-track residency in psychiatry at
Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, where he was also chief
resident. Following residency, he did a post-doctoral fellowship
focused on clinical epidemiology. As a resident, he was awarded an
APA/GlaxoSmithKline Fellowship, and, as a fellow, he was named a Health
Services Research Scholar by the APA/Van Ameringen Foundation.
fellowship, Dr. Das was Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford
University and a core faculty member of the Stanford Center for
Biomedical Informatics Research. He was also Assistant Professor of
Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. He was on the executive committee
for the Biomedical Informatics graduate program and was Director of the
Biomedical Informatics Scholarly Concentration.
informatics research focuses on computational methods for knowledge
management and knowledge discovery in healthcare and translational
medicine. His current work includes projects for cataloging
autism phenotypes, visualizing HIV treatment outcomes, and analyzing
breast cancer care pathways. Dr. Das has received a PhRMA
Research Foundation Starter Award in Informatics, and has several
awards for his scientific papers and for his teaching and advising.
