Education and Outreach
Summer Undergraduate Research Program
The Systems Biology Center New York (SBCNY) Undergraduate Research Program offers summer research fellowships to City University of New York (CUNY) undergraduates who are planning to pursue PhD or MD/PhD degree programs after graduation and who are interested in incorporating systems biology approaches into the research that they pursue.
Predoctoral and Postdoctoral
Research Opportunities for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows
The Center sponsors fellowship programs offering research training in systems biology to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Systems Biology of Disease and Therapeutics Training Program
This predoctoral program trains students to integrate approaches in systems biology, genomics and pharmacology in order to elucidate the pathophysiology of complex human diseases and develop novel therapeutic strategies.
The Center developed two new graduate level courses focused on integration across biomedical disciplines: Systems Biology: Biomedical Modeling and Systems Biomedicine: Molecules, Cells and Networks. Both courses are offered every year at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai as core courses within the Systems Biology of Disease and Therapeutics (SDBT) training program. The SBCNY website hosts course materials for the following courses developed within the Center:
- Systems Biomedicine: Molecules, Cells and Networks
- Systems Biology: Biomedical Modeling
- Applied Mathematics for Biologists
- Cell Signaling Networks and Systems Pharmacology
- Computer Programming in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics
- Data Mining and Network Analysis
Systems Biology Courses on Coursera
Systems Biology Center New York investigators are offering three systems biology courses on Coursera that focus on training students to use computation to convert the information in large and small data-sets in biomedical sciences to understand disease progression, adverse events in individual patients, and to predict efficacy of drug therapy.
Distinguished Visiting Faculty
This program brings recognized leaders in various fields to the Center to facilitate interactions with SBCNY Investigators and trainees.
Workshops, Seminars and Symposia
The public outreach activities of the Center include the annual SBCNY symposium held at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY. In addition to the annual symposium, public outreach activities include: a seminar series featuring leaders in systems biology and workshops on the use of software tools and resources developed within the Center.
Funding: The Systems Biology Center New York is supported by grant number P50 GM071558 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
