Introduction to the Systems Biology Training Program


What is Systems Biology?

Additional Sources of Relevant Funding

The Systems Biology Training Program has available funding for Systems Biology students wishing to attend external workshops or conferences. Students are eligible to receive this funding on a competitive basis (conference/workshop fit to the training program, performance of the student). The student is expected to arrange for matching funds from supervisor or alternative source. An application form is available: Travel funds application [.docx]

Systems Biology Training Program participants

The Systems Biology Training Program is open to students from any discipline who are interested in adapting their current work into a systems approach to health research, and who are currently working in a lab that meets the program’s requirements. Traditionally, students have come from the life sciences departments, such as Biochemistry, Physiology, and Biology, or from related quantitative disciplines such as Bioinformatics or Biostatistics. We encourage, however, applications from students in diverse fields such as Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Engineering, Psychology, etc.

Description of the Systems Biology Training Program Curriculum

The Systems Biology Training Program will provide Ph.D. students with early career training to prepare them for multidisciplinary research and to lead interdisciplinary teams.
