Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program

The Division of Biomedical Informatics and Genomics offers a Ph.D. track in Biomedical Informatics (BMI) within the Biomedical Science (BMS) Ph.D. program to assist in the discovery of novel therapeutic treatments and point to new lines of scientific and medical inquiry for improving human health. The program, Ph.D. track in BMI within BMS, is a part of the doctoral programs in Biomedical Sciences at Tulane University’s School of Medicine.

The Center for Biomedical Informatics and Genomics (CBG) is currently seeking 3-5 current or future students of the Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Sciences to join its multidisciplinary research team. Interested students may choose a faculty member from the CBG to serve as their main advisor. After completing all course requirements, students will conduct research in the CBG for the duration of the program and receive an annual stipend through the Center. Curriculum is specific to the CBG, and will be open to all students of the interdisciplinary Ph.D. program. Prospective students should apply to the Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Sciences through the School of Medicine.
