About

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology deals with the analysis, handling, and comprehension of the large amounts of data produced by advanced techniques used in modern biological research (especially genomics, proteomics, and molecular and cellular biology).

Overview

The Division of Bioinformatics & Computational Biology within DMICE provides a unified academic home for an array of disparate educational programs, inter-linked activities and collaborative research efforts across OHSU and beyond. The interdisciplinary coursework draws on inter-institutional faculty expertise at Portland State University and OHSU, and is synergistic with work in the Department of Public Health & Preventive Medicine, the Knight Cancer Institute, the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) and the Kaiser Center for Health Research.

Accreditation

Oregon Health & Science University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality evaluated through a peer review process. 

Programme Structure

Our bioinformatics track offers a rigorous, interdisciplinary submersion in statistics, algorithms, research methods, biology, and computation, with special attention paid to the areas that these competencies overlap (i.e. computational biology). Students are thus given the knowledge and skills to become successful researchers and analysts within the field of bioinformatics.

As you prepare for your pursuit of higher learning at OHSU, you take on many exciting responsibilities and challenges. The pursuit of funding is a responsibility, but it doesn't have to be a challenge. OHSU recognizes that students and their families may have difficulty financing postsecondary education. To ensure that qualified Master's and PhD students have an opportunity to attend OHSU, the university provides financial assistance through the Financial Aid Office. Students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate program are not eligible for financial aid.However, Sallie Mae offers a Smart Option Student Loan for students with an undergraduate degree who are enrolled in a certificate program. Visit the Sallie Mae site for more details, or call (877) 279-7172.
