Training Grant in Bioinformatics & Computational Biology

Since the start, the Bioinformatics Program has maintained an affiliation with the National Institutes of Health.  This association has included the Graduate Partnership Program (BU-NIH GPP), substantial funding through faculty research grants, individual predoctoral (F31) training grants, and training grants through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).

The Program currently receives funding from the NIH Institutional Training Grant in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (T32GM100842). This grant provides first-year fellowships to prepare PhD students for careers in the molecular life sciences who will support the advances now underway in modern medicine. These scholarships are awarded at the time of admission and do not require a separate application. These awards are made to students who have a record of outstanding academic ability and who have demonstrated enthusiasm and knowledge in the field of Bioinformatics.
