Computation, Bioinformatics, and Statistics (CBIOS) Predoctoral Training Program

A National Institutes of Health funded predoctoral training program aimed at preparing young scientists to excel in cross-disciplinary genomics research cutting across the traditional disciplines of life sciences, computer science, bioinformatics, and statistics

CBIOS trainees will be vital members of the genomics and bioinformatics research community that strives to harvest insights from genomic data to improve human health.

This program builds on the faculty and curriculum of multiple graduate programs at Penn State and is supported by the NRSA Institutional Predoctoral Training Program (T32) in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology from the National Institute of General Medicine.

The focus of the program is to provide cross-disciplinary, early training to selected trainees from participating graduate programs. Trainees will be supported for a period of two years as a part of their doctoral program.
