  • Bioinformatics Internships and Careers

    Saint Vincent students have participated in internships at a variety of top tier research institutions in the field of Bioinformatics, including Johns Hopkins University, Cornell University, the University of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Tissue Engineering Initiative, Allegheny General Hospital, the Immune Tolerance Network, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center. Students in our program combine the advantages of a small college atmosphere with the opportunities to participate in internships at nationally and internationally recognized institutions.

    Bioinformatics training provides a foundation for a wide range of possible career paths. Graduates from the program have been accepted into Masters and PhD programs at Cornell University, Columbia University, Virginia Tech, and the University of Michigan, among others. Graduates will also be well-positioned to compete for Bachelor-level positions in industrial, governmental, or academic settings.
