The Wei Lab at Vanderbilt University Medical Center was founded to address the growing needs of the scientific community for Electronic Health Record (EHR) based phenotyping. The primary goal of the Wei Lab is to enable better research through better phenotyping. The Wei Lab is based in the Department of Biomedical Informatics, collaborates with various departments around the university and beyond, and has received supports from multiple agents including the American Heart Association (AHA),  National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI),  and National Institute on Aging (NIA).

Positions Available: We are always seeking highly motivated individuals (postdoc fellows, graduate students, and programmers) to join our group. Work with us on mining EHR and genetic data to enhance precision medicine. For more information, please contact Wei-Qi Wei.


We have a mixed team from various background including medicine, genetics, biology, statistics, and computer science.
