Bill ID: 18-19-28
PCC ID: 18054
Name: PCC Proposal to Establish a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Computation and Mathematics for Biological Networks (COMBINE)
Proposed: 11/30/2018
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: In the continued effort to foster excellence in interdisciplinary research and education at the University of Maryland, and as part of the mission to provide the highest quality graduate and professional education, we propose to create a new Graduate Certificate in Network Biology to be administered by the Institute for Physical Science and Technology (IPST) at UMD. This Graduate Certificate program is designed to accompany the current NSF-funded Research Traineeship (NRT) program, which was award in 2016 and will continue through 2021. The graduate certificate program we propose is designed to continue beyond the period of NSF funding. This unique program is tailored to address important challenges at the forefront of data enabled science and engineering by training currently enrolled doctoral students to pursue transformative research at the convergence of the physical/mathematical, computer, and life sciences.
