HST offers two specialized training programs within the MEMP PhD program:
NTP allows students to further specialize in biomedical imaging. An NIH-funded training grant provides financial support for US citizens and permanent residents who participate in this training program. International students may elect to participate in the training program's curriculum without receiving NIH funding.
This program, supported by funding from the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, combines the biomedical and engineering disciplines of HST's Medical Engineering/Medical Physics (MEMP) curriculum with space life science and human factors specialization, and hands-on experience in the human space flight arena.
[Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics (BIG)]
The Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics (BIG) training program, formerly offered through HST, is now administered through Harvard Medical School's Division of Medical Sciences (DMS), effective fall 2012. Interested candidates should apply via DMS. Please see http://www.hms.harvard.edu/dms/big/prospective/index.html for more information.
