The Department of Medical Biometry, Informatics and Epidemiology (IMBIE) is located at the UKB campus at the Venusberg. One of the aims of the IMBIE is to support the information-technology-related requirements of medical research projects.

A complex interdisciplinary project such as the BioBank Bonn, where several research facilities and departments are collaborating, requires a sophisticated IT infrastructure and constant adaptation of the underlying software system, in compliance with the existing regulations for patient privacy and data protection.

The IMBIE will participate in the installation and operation of professional software solutions that will power the biobank. In collaboration with the UK-IT service, the IMBIE will also configure and implement the common interfaces of the biobank software to the connected systems from other facilities.

Following the successful launch of the Biobank software, the IMBIE will manage, maintain and update its IT infrastructure in cooperation with the Institute for Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Pharmacology and the Institute of Pathology.
