Graduate Funding

The following training grants are related to biomathematics and computational medicine.

For a complete list of pre-doctoral and post-doctoral training grants in the biomedical and life sciences at UCLA, see the webpage UCLA's Competitive Research Training Grant Programs

Systems and Integrative Biology (SIB) training grant

The NIH-sponsored Systems and Integrative Biology training grant support pre-doctoral students who seek a balanced and rigorous training in mathematics and biology/biomedicine with a special emphasis on research in mathematical modeling in biology or biomedicine.  Trainees will complete a minimum of 20 quarter units of advanced courses in quantitative methods, 20 quarter units in biological sciences, one course on ethics in biological/medical research, and at least one quarter per year of directed research in the laboratory of a participating faculty member. For more information, please contact the director, Tom Chou, or the student affairs officer, Emily Fitch.

Genomic Analysis Training Program (GATP)

The Genomic Analysis Training Program is funded by an NIH grant and supports UCLA pre-doctoral students whose goal is to conduct research in genomics. The program provides its trainees with stipends and funding for academic fees, travel, and research. For more information, contact Issa Lutfi.

ModEling and uNdersTanding human behaviOR (MENTOR) NRT

The NSF-funded MENTOR program offers unique opportunities to train future scientists to develop and deploy new mathematical models, analytical methods, and application tools that directly address the challenges in managing, analyzing and integrating new and diverse types of data and knowledge across scientific and engineering disciplines. It draws upon a core group of interdisciplinary faculty researchers and teachers across UCLA.  For more information, contact Andrea Bertozzi (PI) or Wei Wang (co-investigator). 

Pre-doctoral and Post-doctoral Training Programs in Neurobehavioral Genetics

The Center for Neurobehavioral Genetics is accepting nominations of candidates for the NINDS-funded postdoctoral training program in neurobehavioral genetics and the NIMH-funded predoctoral training program in neurobehavioral genetics. For more information, please contact Yoon Jung.
