Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program

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 specific to the CBG is forthcoming, 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.
