Summer 2024 Scholars Bioinformatics and Machine-Learning Program
Under the guidance of CureScience scientists students will conduct original, innovative research projects specifically in computational biology, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. A weekly hour and a half lecture for the students will be conducted by the CureScience scientists. Students are expected to spend at least four hours a day working on an independent project. Students will also have an opportunity to explore scientific careers with CureScience scientists.
On a limited basis, the training program is available for undergraduate and high-school students from diverse backgrounds. The course is limited to the first eligible 20 students. We encourage under-represented minority students.
