Training Program in Quantitative Biology and Physiology
This program is for students with an interest in studying biological phenomena at all length scales (molecular through organ- level) using a combination of computational and experimental techniques. The program is supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). A large fraction of the BME faculty, as well as faculty from other departments, are included among the training faculty for this program. The curriculum for the NIH training program is somewhat different than for other BME PhD students. Students in this program are involved in a number of specialized, enriching activities, including journal clubs and retreats.
Applicants should indicate their interest in this interdisciplinary program in the personal statement of the BME application form in order to be considered for stipend and tuition support from the NIGMS training grant in Quantitative Biology and Physiology.
