Who We Are

GCB supports our research collaborations with four core facilities that provide expertise and services in genomic and computational technologies and in data analysis and with funding for bold and innovative interdisciplinary research.

Our educational programs, including a Ph.D. program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and an undergraduate certificate course, train the current and next generation of researchers. We support undergraduates, graduate students, and senior researchers with a variety of classes, hands-on workshops, a summer fellowship program, diverse research opportunities, and lectures from experts from Duke and across the world.

CBB PHD

PHD IN COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY & BIOINFORMATICS

The mission of the the Duke University Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics is to train predoctoral students to become leaders at the interdisciplinary intersection of quantitative and biomedical sciences, using sophisticated computational methods to address contemporary challenges across biology and medicine.

Message from the Director

We're excited to offer graduate training in cutting-edge computational biology and bioinformatics. We encourage students take full advantage of the creativity-driven, highly interdisciplinary research environment at Duke. With participating faculty from Engineering, Medicine, and Arts & Sciences, students can choose from a wide range of research and training opportunities. I encourage you to explore our website for more information and to contact individual faculty members whose research interests you.
