Training and Research Areas

The joint Ph.D. in genomic medicine is designed to provide training at the interface between genetics, genomics, other high throughput experimental methodologies, and quantitative analysis in biomedicine. Each student will have two designated supervisors, one from each university.

Eligible research areas include:

  • Quantitative genetics

  • Population genetics

  • Genetic/genomic epidemiology

  • High-throughput experimental methods in biology associated with quantitative analysis of data

  • Bioinformatics and computational genomics

Currently available topics from participating faculty will be posted in the near future. Students are free to propose their own research topics subject to acceptance by their supervisors.
