Institutional Programs

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund launched an institutional award program in 2008 supporting graduate education in programs that will train students for simultaneous expertise in both population and computational approaches (for example, epidemiology) and science done “at the bench.” These students should emerge well-positioned to take on complex problems currently beyond the reach of most traditionally-trained individual investigators.

Current Program:

Quantitative and Statistical Thinking in the Life Sciences

Previous Program:
Institutional Program Unifying Population and Laboratory-Based Sciences
