Noémie Elhadad Selected As 2023 Donald A.B. Lindberg Award
for Innovation in Informatics Honoree
Noémie Elhadad, Chair and Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University, has been selected as the 2023 recipient of the prestigious Donald A.B. Lindberg Award for Innovation in Informatics. Elhadad and all other awardees will be acknowledged at the AMIA 2023 Annual Symposium, Nov. 11-15, in New Orleans.
Dr. Elhadad’s research interests are at the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing, and medicine. She investigates ways in which observational clinical data (e.g., electronic health records) and patient-generated data (e.g., online health community discussions, mobile health data) can enhance access to relevant information for clinicians, patients, and health researchers alike and can ultimately impact healthcare and health of patients.

AMIA’s Annual Symposium presents leading-edge scientific research on biomedical and health informatics, showcasing more than 600 scientific sessions. The Symposium is the largest informatics event worldwide. The work presented spans the spectrum of the informatics field: translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, clinical informatics, consumer health informatics and public health informatics.
The AMIA Signature Awards program provides an opportunity for AMIA members at different stages of their careers—early, established and lifetime—to be recognized for significant contributions to the field of informatics.
“I am delighted to recognize and honor these outstanding informatics leaders and their accomplishments” said Gretchen Purcell Jackson, MD, PhD, FACS, FACMI, FAMIA, AMIA Board Chair and President, Vice President and Scientific Medical Officer, Intuitive Surgical, and Associate Professor of Surgery, Pediatrics, and Biomedical Informatics, Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The awards celebrate demonstrated excellence in using informatics to transform health and healthcare delivery. The exceptional work and achievements deserve the spotlight, and we congratulate our colleagues on their successes.”
The Signature Awards will be presented on Sunday, November 12 at the Opening Session.
The Donald A.B. Lindberg Award for Innovation in Informatics honors Dr. Lindberg’s continuous commitment to the field has dramatically altered the scope and extent of informatics’ practice and research. The contribution recognized will have advanced the field for example in the form of a significant innovation or a unique approach and contribution to education or training, but not for a lifetime body of work. The criteria are:
- Awarded to an individual at any stage of a career for a specific technological, research, or educational contribution that advances biomedical informatics.
- Adoption of the particular advance by the informatics community will be on a national or international level.
- Scope of a successful innovation of informatics has dramatically moved or changed the field.
- Demonstrated commitment to AMIA through membership.
