Bioinformatics and Computational BiologyThe T32 Predoctoral Training Program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) grant has been renewed for five years by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

Dr. Will Valdar (Professor, Department of Genetics and Director, BCB Curriculum) is the contact PI and Dr. Tim Elston (Professor, Department of Pharmacology and Co-Director, Computational Medicine Program) is co-PI.  The T32 training program will support 5 BCB students during their second year of graduate training. In addition to providing didactic training and scientific research opportunities, the BCB curriculum provides professional training opportunities by sponsoring events such as “lunch and learn” sessions with representatives from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors and “hackathons” with the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
