Training Programs in Biomedical Ontology

One of the NCBO's goals is to facilitate and encourage the training of future researchers to use biomedical ontologies and related tools in the hope of enhancing scientific discovery. The Center undertakes an ambitious education training program by producing educational videos and providing a biweekly webinar series.

For those interested in more formal training in Biomedical Ontology, please see the programs below.


Stanford University's Biomedical Informatics Training Program

US News & World Report recently ranked Stanford as #1 for graduate training in biological sciences. Stanford's Computer Science graduate department was ranked #1. In addition to excellent ratings in individual departments, Stanford was ranked #2 (tied with MIT) in "Genetics/Genomics/Bioinformatics."
Pre- and postdoctoral fellows can work with NCBO personnel to study aspects of ontology use and development in the biomedicial field.


New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics & Life Sciences Training Program

An academic resource to educate scientists, engineers and researchers in critical science and technology areas pertaining to bioinformatics and life sciences. The University at Buffalo, in tandem with expertise from the other CoE research partners at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute, has established new bachelors and masters degree programs to support the CoE's educational mission.
