NLM Training Program in Biomedical Informatics and Computational Biology

Funded by the National Library of Medicine (NLM)

  • PI - Dr. G. Anthony Gorry, Rice University
  • Eligibility Requirements - U.S. Citizen / Permanant Resident

 

The purpose of this training program is to provide cross-training at the interface between computational/mathematical sciences and biological sciences/biomedicine. This program serves the needs of trained such as a young physician who wishes to expand her/his analytical and computational knowledge of computer-assisted analysis, simulation and multi-dimensional imaging: or a biologist who wants to develop expertise in functional genomics; or a computer scientist who wants to prepare her/himself for a research career in computational biology.

Trainees profit from interdisciplinary training through two mentors, one biomedical, the other computational.
