Paul Myers, a second-year Ph.D. student in Associate Professor Matthew Lazzara’s Cell Signaling Engineering Lab, has been appointed to the Biomedical Data Sciences training program. The Biomedical Data Sciences Training Program aims to prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers to address the monumental challenge of multi-type biomedical big data manipulation, analysis and interpretation. It proposes a curriculum and a set of programmatic activities to create an interdisciplinary training ground wherein teams of students will work across key disciplines, benefit from a true co-mentoring and interdisciplinary environment, and develop the technical and leadership skills necessary to succeed as independent scientists making groundbreaking new discoveries enabled by biomedical big data.
