    Dr. Jihad Obeid is the Co-director of the Biomedical Informatics Center and Division Leader of the Division of Biomedical Informatics, Health Systems and Policy in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). He is an associate professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences, the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine; and at the College of Health Professions, Department of Health Sciences and Research at MUSC. He is a pediatrician who was formally trained in Medical Informatics at the Division of Health Sciences and Technology, a joint Harvard-MIT fellowship program.

    As co-director of the Biomedical Informatics Center, he oversees several academic and operational informatics initiatives. He leads the effort on multiple Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Informatics projects such as, the Clinical Data Warehouse (CDW), i2b2, REDCap, Profiles research networking system, and many others. Since his arrival at MUSC he has been a co-investigator and informatics leader on several NIH funded projects. He is also the Principal Investigator on the IRB protocols for the use of the CDW systems for research, both at MUSC and statewide at HSSC. At the national level, he was an elected member the National CTSA Informatics Operations Committee (2012-2013); he co-chaired the REDCap Library Oversight Committee for reviewing shared data collection instruments within the international consortium and currently co-leads the Electronic Consent Affinity Group. Dr. Obeid teaches Informatics and Data Management in the Master’s program in Clinical Research.

    His research interests include: secondary use of clinical data for research; research data repositories; electronic consents; machine learning; analysis of researcher networks; biomedical ontologies.
