The Bioinformatics Graduate Program is flexible and attracts applicants from a wide range of academic backgrounds. Consequently, the training programs listed here enhance a variety of students disciplines. Furthermore, the Graduate Program is proud of its diverse student body and encourages students from traditionally underrepresented minorities, disadvantaged backgrounds, and those with disabilities to apply for training grant appointments. Appointing such students to these grants is an asset both to the Program and the student.

Biomedical Informatics and Data Science Training Program

The Biomedical Informatics and Data Science Training Program (BIDS-TP) aims to train a cadre of data-savvy, computationally skilled, and highly motivated biomedical scholars through the development of an intellectually stimulating environment and the implementation of an effective competency-based curriculum. To enhance their scientific, clinical, and translational abilities, all BIDS-TP students will be trained in collecting, managing, processing, interrogating, and analyzing large amounts of complex high-dimensional biomedical information with rigor and transparency.

Genome Sciences Training Program

The Genome Sciences Training Program (GSTP) is an NIH funded interdisciplinary program for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral candidates. More information can be found here: Bionformatics Ph.D. students who are interested in learning more or applying, should speak with Prof. Margit Burmeister.

Proteomics Training Program

The Proteogenomics of Cancer Training Program, funded by the National Cancer Institute, supports students performing graduate cancer-related research and provides training for proteome informatics research.
