Bradley Malin, Ph.D., is the Vice Chair for Research and an Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the School of Medicine in the School of Engineering at Vanderbilt University. He is also an Associate Professor of Computer Science in the School of Engineering and is Affiliated Faculty in the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society.  He is the founder and current director of the Health Information Privacy Laboratory (HIPLab), an interdisciplinary endeavor that was established to address the growing need for data privacy research and development for the rapidly expanding health information technology sector. The HIPLab is funded through various grants from the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health to construct technologies that enable privacy in the context of real world organizational, political, and health information architectures. To build practical solutions, the HIPLab draws upon methodologies in computer science, biomedical science, and public policy, but has also been known to innovate novel computational techniques when the state-of-the art is insufficient. In addition to its role as a scientific research program, for the past several years, the HIPLab has functioned as a data privacy consultation service for the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) network, a consortium sponsored by the National Human Genome Research Institute and National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

Under the direction of Dr. Malin, the HIPLab has made contributions to a number of health-related areas, including intelligent auditing technologies to protect electronic medical records from misuse in the context of primary care, as well as algorithms to formally anonymize patient information disseminated for secondary research purposes. Notably, their investigations on the empirical risks to health information re-identification have been cited by the Federal Trade Commission in the Federal Register and certain privacy enhancing technologies they have developed have been featured in popular media outlets and blogs, including Nature News, Scientific American, and Wired magazine. Research artifacts from the HIPLab have received several awards of distinction from the American and International Medical Informatics Associations and Dr. Malin was honored as a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers.

Dr. Malin completed his education at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, where he received a bachelor's in biological sciences, a master's in data mining and knowledge discovery, a master's in public policy and management, and a doctorate in computer science.
