University/Institute: Carnegie Mellon University (CMU)
Location: United States - Pittsburgh
Focus: Computational Biology
Recommended Undergraduate Degrees: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Math/Statistics
Degree Offered: Ph.D/DSc (< 1 year)Ph.D/DSc (Major/Primary Degree)

Program Goals:

The Joint CMU-Pitt Ph.D. Program in Computational Biology (CPCB) provides interdisciplinary training in using quantitative and computational approaches to tackle scientific questions that lie at the interface of the life, physical, engineering, and computer sciences. CPCB trainees are taught and mentored by leading experts at two of the foremost computer science and biomedical research institutions in the world. The program provides students with interdisciplinary training in various fields of computational biology: Cellular and Systems Modeling, Computational Structural Biology, Bioimage Informatics, and Computational Genomics. CPCB students also benefit from numerous professional development opportunities available at both host institutions. Together, the CPCB program positions our students to be leaders in this exciting field of biology and has prepared our graduates to go on to successful careers in both academia, industry, and beyond!
