About Us



      Graduate Institute of Biomedical Informatics (GIBI) is located in the Taipei Medical University (TMU) campus. GIBI has two research study rooms, three discussion rooms, and one laboratory of physiological signals. The research study rooms are equipped with computers, printers, and other peripherals for student use. The discussion rooms fitted up to thirty persons and are equipped with computers, projectors, and projection screens that can be used in teaching, discussion, and videoconferencing. These facilities also provide possibilities for online distance learning, and the presentation can be recorded and used as a learning material later.
