Students with an undergraduate science major (e.g., biology, chemistry) should apply for a fellowship in BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH. The Biomedical Research fellowships are designed for students with a solid background in science who wish to be part of an ongoing research project, develop their technical skills and are interested in pursuing a research career. Students with an undergraduate major in computer sciences, mathematics or a related discipline are encouraged to apply for a fellowship in BIOINFORMATICS.
