Additional Information: 

Dr. Payne is currently appointed as an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University (OSU-BMI). He also serves as the Director of the Biomedical Informatics Program for OSU’s CTSA-funded Center for Clinical and Translational Science, Co-Director of the Biomedical Informatics Shared Resource within the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Co-Director of the OSU Center for IT Innovation in Healthcare (CITIH). Dr. Payne received his Ph.D. with distinction in Biomedical Informatics from Columbia University, where his research focused on the design and evaluation of advanced information management platforms for clinical and translational research. Dr. Payne’s research portfolio is actively supported by a combination of NCRR, NLM, and NCI awards and contracts. Current projects within Dr. Payne’s laboratory include: 1) the development of novel informatics platforms capable of enabling the collection, exchange, and integration of distributed, multi-dimensional, and heterogeneous biomedical data and knowledge sources; 2) the use of knowledge engineering methodologies to support high-throughput discovery of novel phenotype-biomarker linkages and complexes in large-scale data sets; and 3) the application of workflow analysis and human-computer interaction design principles in order to enable the adoption and optimal use of information systems in biomedical research and clinical care settings.
