A hematologist-oncologist at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, Warner has also specialized in informatics in recent years. He received his board certification in 2017 from the American Board of Preventive Medicine, Clinical Informatics, but his first publications on informatics predate that.

“The AMIA has a pretty broad constituency of clinicians, but also epidemiologists and computer scientists,” Warner said.

“I’m really excited that clinicians are being recognized as contributing members of this community.”

Warner, associate professor of Medicine and Biomedical Informatics, directs the Vanderbilt Cancer Registry and Stem Cell Transplant Data Analysis Team.

He is the third Vanderbilt University Medical Center researcher to receive the AMIA New Investigator Award. Trent Rosenbloom, MD, was the 2009 recipient, and Joshua Denny, MD, was the 2012 recipient.

The AMIA award recipients will be honored at the organization’s annual symposium scheduled for Nov. 3-7 in San Francisco.
