Since 2016, UCLA’s Department of Computational Medicine has sponsored the Computational Genomics Summer Institute (CGSI) with funding from the NIH. Each summer, CGSI brings together over a hundred researchers and trainees from many disciplines (statistics, engineering, medicine, math, computer science, genetics, etc.) who showcase their latest research.  The dates of the 2023 long program are July 12 to August 4.   CGSI director Dr. Eleazar Eskin and the 2023 organizing committee began inviting speakers and accepting applications from trainees in December. 

This year CGSI is expanding beyond its original focus of computational methods in genomics. The second workshop will cover computational methods in medicine more broadly, including computational approaches to medical imaging, machine learning applied to health data, and computational genomics of biobanks.   

Also, new this year: each short program will dedicate some of the time to several thematic sub-workshops that will include lectures by experts and an opportunity for trainees to showcase their own research to a portion of the audience.

Finally, to reach trainees who have not been part of CGSI previously and who belong to groups that are underrepresented in this area of research CGSI has established a partnership with the Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Consortium to Advance Health Equity and Researcher Diversity (AIM-AHEAD). 

The application is open. Please apply online.
