Bioinformatics Training Program for Health Research

The CIHR/MSFHR bioinformatics training program operates as a scholarship program for a select number of students who are undertaking a Bioinformatics M.Sc. degree at either the University of British Columbia or Simon Fraser University.

Please note that if you are not accepted into this scholarship program, you must find your own supervisor from the mentor/faculty list. Once you have done this, please contact eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%62%69%6f%69%6e%66%6f%72%6d%61%74%69%63%73%70%72%6f%67%72%61%6d%40%62%63%67%73%63%2e%63%61%22%3e%62%69%6f%69%6e%66%6f%72%6d%61%74%69%63%73%70%72%6f%67%72%61%6d%40%62%63%67%73%63%2e%63%61%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')).

The deadline for Canadian and American applications is March 4, 2011. An application form can be downloaded here. Please read the information about the program on this web site carefully. If you have any questions, please contact eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%62%69%6f%69%6e%66%6f%72%6d%61%74%69%63%73%70%72%6f%67%72%61%6d%40%62%63%67%73%63%2e%63%61%22%3e%62%69%6f%69%6e%66%6f%72%6d%61%74%69%63%73%70%72%6f%67%72%61%6d%40%62%63%67%73%63%2e%63%61%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))

Graduate Studies in Bioinformatics

If you are majoring in one of the following areas:

  • biological discipline (biology, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, medicine)
  • quantitative science (computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, statistics)

If you have significant experience in a second one of these fields, and strong academic qualifications, the Strategic Training Program in Bioinformatics might be what you're looking for. You can study in Vancouver, BC, Canada for a Masters or a Ph.D.

The Strategic Training Program in Bioinformatics is a partnership among Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, and the BC Cancer Research Centre, and is sponsored by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR), Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

In addition to academic course work, students will conduct research rotations in both computational and biologically-oriented laboratories, and the program's mentors will personally guide your progress.
