New graduate training opportunity for University of Minnesota MSTP students

Bioinformatics, computational biology and health informatics are playing an increasingly important role in the biomedical sciences and in medicine. The University of Minnesota Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) now offers students the opportunity to complete PhD training in the Biomedical Informatics and Computational Biology (BICB) Graduate Program. The focus of the BICB graduate program at the interface of quantitative sciences, medicine, and biology via work in interdisciplinary teams is a strong fit for the physician-scientist career path in this era of genomics and personalized medicine. BICB graduate students receive rigorous training in the development and applications of computational methods. A highly flexible program structure allows MSTP students to develop an individualized interdisciplinary research pathway that will utilize courses, faculty, and resources throughout the University of Minnesota. You can learn more about this MSTP research training opportunity at the BICB website.
