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, go to https://medschool.ucla.edu/research/uclas-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)

https://medschool.ucla.edu/human-genetics/genomic-analysis-and-interpretation

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 at ilutfi@mednet.ucla.edu

ModEling and uNdersTanding human behaviOR (MENTOR) NRT 

The 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 (bertozzi@math.ucla.edu) or Wei Wang (weiwang@cs.ucla.edu). 

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

https://www.semel.ucla.edu/cng/training

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.

Please contact Yoon Jung at YJJung@mednet.ucla.edu

Biomedical Big Data Training Grant

UCLA Medical Imaging Informatics is home to two NIH T32 training programs:

Medical & Imaging Informatics supports graduate students pursuing medical and imaging informatics research at UCLA from a variety of departments, including Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Information Studies.

BD2K: Biomedical Big Data supports graduate students pursuing biomedical big data analysis research at UCLA. and allows students to explore and gain experience in fundamental aspects of biomedical "big data" analysis.
