Students in the CBM program use computational methods, often in conjunction with experimental approaches, to solve problems across a spectrum of biomedical disciplines. Under the mentorship of an outstanding faculty, training is rigorous, yet flexible, and tailored to the specific goals of each trainee.

Tri-Institutional Collaboration CBM brings together the exceptional educational and research resources of Cornell University in Ithaca, its Medical College in NYC (Weill Cornell Medical College), and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Program faculty, representing a wide range of research disciplines, provide CBM students with the full range of training opportunities.

Students in the program have published in well-respected scientific journals, and are provided with opportunities for presentations and networking experiences at national and international conferences. Taken together, the CBM Program provides an outstanding training experience at the forefront of computational biology and biomedical research and positions our graduates to become leaders in the field of computational biology.

Two Dynamic Environments Students have the best of two exceptional academic environments - the beautiful college-town campus in Ithaca and the cosmopolitan excitement of New York City. Both locales provide CBM students access to world-class academic and research centers where they are provided with a range of resources to enhance their graduate training experience.

Recognition of the Program by the NIH The CBM program is the recipient of a prestigious National Institutes of Health T32 pre-doctoral training grant. This award not only provides support for the program’s generous student funding, but also serves as a recognition of training excellence. CBM is one of a small number of programs in the field to be selected by the NIH for this award.
