MS in Computational Biology & Medicine at Weill Cornell

The Master’s program in Computational Biology and Medicine (CBM-MS) offers a unique training opportunity, providing students theoretical understanding of the quantitative methods underlying modern biomedical science and practical training in state-of-the-art applications of computational approaches in biology and medicine. Our faculty from Weill Cornell Medicine, Sloan-Kettering Institute, and Cornell Tech are world-class leaders in computational biology research and applications.

The CBM-MS is 18 months in duration. The first half of the program contains foundation and competency courses in mathematics, biology, and computer science, and provides training in quantitative biology and bioinformatics. The second half of the program focuses on thesis research. Students will join one of our top-notch research labs to carry out an independent, mentored, project.

Upon graduation from CMB-MS, students will be prepared to launch a professional career at the forefront of data analytics, bioinformatics, and computer modeling, for example in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Likewise, for those interested in PhD studies in computational biology or related fields, this degree will strengthen their preparation and competitiveness.
