Students majoring in Bioinformatics can look forward to careers in the healthcare, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as research opportunities in universities and government laboratories. They will also be well-prepared to apply to dental or medical schools. This is a growing field with enormous career opportunities at the Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral levels - demand is high for individuals with a combination of biological knowledge and computational skills. Graduates of the program may find themselves creating databases for a gene discovery project, using computer modeling to characterize the structure and function of a newly discovered protein, employing computational models to predict the spread of disease, or helping manage and analyze data from clinical trials. As you can see from the examples below, there are a variety of opportunities available to graduates from the program.
Mallory is in the PhD program in Bioinformatics at the University of Michigan, studying RNA in the worm C. elegans in the Kim lab.
Mary obtained her Master's Degree in Biomedical Informatics from Columbia University in 2012. She is currently a research associate working with Dr. Weng in the Biomedical Informatics department at Columbia on clinical and translational informatics.
Kim is currently a PhD student in the Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology program at the University of Hawaii.
Aaron works at UPMC for a group that designs and analyzes mobile medical record interfaces.
Martin worked extensively on the RAE project with Dr. Mark Sangimino while an undergraduate and is now an intern with Dr. Sangimino at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.
Aaron will be attending Dental School at West Virginia University starting in the Fall of 2013.
