The Ph.D. Program in Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CBB) is an integrative, multi-disciplinary training program that encompasses biology using computational and quantitative methods. In and out of the classroom, students learn to apply the tools of statistics, mathematics, computer science and informatics to biological problems. Vibrant and innovative research in these fields provides exciting interactions between biological and computational scientists. Because CBB is based in the Duke Center for Genomic and Computational Biology (GCB), it offers a unique opportunity for students to become tomorrow's leaders in genome sciences.
Research in the Tomaras Laboratory in the Duke Human Vaccine Institute and Departments of Surgery, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at Duke University Medical Center focuses on the identification of immune correlates of protection for preventative vaccines and identification of the mechanisms responsible for potent inhibition of human pathogens.
