Healthcare & Life Sciences Research - overview

IBM's founders wanted to give back to the world and see how computers could aid the health of our community.  Out of that early commitment, and recognizing the huge opportunity to help the world using computers to aid the understanding of how our bodies work and can be treated, IBM Research is committed to working on medical informatics.  IBM Research has a world class physics department that helps design devices that go into computers and some of that research tells us what artificial things we can do to aid people.
