The CCB Innovation Fellows Program was created to form a cadre of experts in both computation and experimentation, equipped to interpret vast data on the human genome and find new biological insights. CCB Innovation Fellows are provided with advisers in both computation and experimentation, ensuring they will gain skills unavailable through a traditional Ph.D. program and perform work impossible for any single research group.
If you would like to sponsor a Fellow, please feel free to contact us.
