Regenstrief Institute Receives WHO Designation

The Indianapolis-based Regenstrief Institute's medical informatics group has received the first Collaborating Center for Medical Informatics designation from the World Health Organization (WHO), reports Inside INdiana Business.

The four-year designation allows the WHO to more directly draw upon the expertise of the group. Regenstrief Institute researcher Paul Biondich (pictured) has been named director of the center. He is also a professor of pediatrics at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

The Regenstrief Institute is a non-profit medical research organization. It is closely affiliated with the Indiana University School of Medicine, Wishard Memorial Hospital and Clarian Health (Methodist, IU and Riley Hospitals). Almost all Regenstrief Institute MD and PhD researchers are also faculty members of the Indiana University School of Medicine. It is named for Samuel N. Regenstrief, an industrial production expert.
