The Computational Biology Summer Program provides meaningful summer research experiences to 10 undergraduate students and combines experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches with a focus on the intersection of the mathematical, computational, and biological sciences. In addition to the research experience, students receive computational biology training, professional skills development, and enrichment sessions geared towards broadening their understanding of the application of and issues surrounding scientific research. Faculty and post-graduate mentors guide the research projects and advise students toward further study and career development.
