Summer Research Opportunity Program
Biomedical Data Science
May 31 – August 5, 2022
The summer research program in Biomedical Data Science (BDS) gives undergraduate students the opportunity to explore careers in biostatistics, bioinformatics, and biomedical big data by working closely with faculty and staff mentors. Such an experience is ideal for students with strength in mathematics and computer sciences who enjoy working with computers and numbers and wish to apply their skills to solving real world problems in biomedical research. There are approximately 50 faculty members actively involved in a wide variety of research activities, including brain image analysis, clinical trials, electronic health records, epidemiology, genomics, experimental design and analysis of laboratory studies.
Participants in the 2021 program worked as a team on a new the new Genomic Variant Interpretation project. Read about our 2021 Program
The BDS program is designed to be accessible to undergraduates who might not otherwise have this kind of research opportunity. There is no cost for program participation. In addition, a stipend is provided to each student, and housing and travel costs are covered. Underrepresented minority, low-income, and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply, as are students from smaller institutions without broad research facilities.
