CBM’s personalized program uses computational methods, often in conjunction with experimental approaches, to solve problems across a broad spectrum of biomedical disciplines.

The Tri-Institutional PhD Program in Computational Biology & Medicine brings together the exceptional educational and research resources of Cornell University in Ithaca, its Medical College in New York City (Weill Cornell Medical College), and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Students have varied research projects from which to choose and are mentored by our unparalleled program faculty across these three outstanding campuses.

When students graduate, their research experience, prominent publications in high quality scientific journals, and presentations at both national and international conferences enable them to become leaders in computational biology.

Learning in 2 dynamic environments

During their training, our students experience two exceptional environments – the beautiful college-town campus in Ithaca and the cosmopolitan excitement of New York City. Both locations provide access to world-class academic and research centers with a range of resources to enhance their graduate training experiences.



such as computational genomics and gene regulation, quantitative and
systems biology, cancer biology and genomics, structural biology and
biophysics, and computational neuroscience.

Computation and Research

recognized by the national institutes of health

CBM is one of a small number of programs in the field to be selected by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to receive a T32 pre-doctoral training grant. This award provides support for CBM’s generous student funding, and, more importantly, is a recognition by the NIH and our peers of training excellence.
