Ph.D. in Computational Biology
The Joint CMU-Pitt PhD Program in Computational Biology (CPCB) is a joint effort between the Computational Biology Department at Carnegie Mellon and the Department of Computational and Systems Biology at the University of Pittsburgh. Its founding directors are Robert F. Murphy (CMU) and Ivet Bahar (Pitt).
By leveraging the great strengths in computation and clinical research of the two universities, CPCB graduates obtain an unparalleled education at the frontier of computational biology. Despite being a relatively young program, over fifty graduates have already begun successful careers, whether in academic research or in industry jobs.
CPCB is graciously funded in part by an NIH T32 Training Grant as part of the NIBIB-HHMI Interfaces Program.
For more information about CPCB, please refer to the program homepage.
You can apply to the CPCB program via Applygrad, a central hub for graduate applications to the CMU School of Computer Science. With a single application, you can apply to multiple graduate programs at CMU!
Please note that you can also select to have your application reviewed for the MS in Computational Biology program free of charge should your application to CPCB not be successful.
