Summer Programs

Summer Fun

The Summer Institute for Training in Biostatistics (SIBS), sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, gives undergraduate students majoring in the quantitative sciences the opportunity to explore a career in biostatistics emphasizing applications in both basic and clinical research.

The Computational Biology and Biostatistics Summer Research Program (CBB), gives minority undergraduate students the opportunity to explore a career in biostatistics and bioinformatics by working closely with faculty and staff mentors. Biostatistics is the application of statistical techniques to data generated from biological problems. Bioinformatics is the application of computational methods to problems in the biological sciences. Both disciplines focus on the development and application of methods to help us understand biological processes.
