    Our collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Cincinnati gives students the opportunity to work closely with BMI faculty. Through course work and hands-on collaboration with faculty, students develop expertise in core areas of bioinformatics:

    • Mathematics
    • Statistics
    • Computational science
    • Basic biology
    • Molecular biology
    • Biomedicine

    Program graduates understand the theory and practice of developing and applying biocomputational models and tools in biomedical research, in addition to the theory and practice of biomedical research itself. With this knowledge, they can conduct methodological research in computational biology and biomedical research using computational methods as their primary tools.

    To assist students in meeting their goals, the Bioinformatics Graduate Program’s curriculum combines core requirements with specially tailored interdisciplinary courses in bioinformatics, biostatistics, computational biology and functional genomics. These courses help students develop tools and expertise for the integration and analysis of data and knowledge across a range of disciplines.
