Program Overview

We aim to prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers to address the monumental challenge of multi-type biomedical big data manipulation, analysis, and interpretation. We propose a curriculum and a set of programmatic activities to create an interdisciplinary training ground wherein teams of students will work across key disciplines, benefit from a true co-mentoring and interdisciplinary environment, and develop the technical and leadership skills necessary to succeed as independent scientists making groundbreaking new discoveries enabled by biomedical big data.
