Message from the Directors

The Master of Science in Biomedical Data Science is a unique program that trains students with a strong quantitative background to put their talents toward imagining and devising solutions for complex biomedical problems. Welcoming a diversity of applicants with undergraduate skills in computer science, statistics, mathematics, engineering, physics, or related disciplines, our Program is designed to prepare the specialized professionals who will energize the biomedical workforce of tomorrow.

At a time when data scientists are increasingly in demand, our interdisciplinary faculty has both the experience and expertise to help students apply computational, mathematical, and statistical thinking to extensive biomedical data in the pursuit of successful and personalized treatments. In addition, Mount Sinai is home to the Biomedical Data Science Initiative and numerous career development opportunities in biomedical data science.

Our Program is housed within the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, a highly collegial forum where students work alongside clinicians, clinician-scientists, translational researchers, basic scientists, and postdocs. Positioned at the intersection of research and translational practice, this dynamic setting is the ideal environment for training the biomedical data scientists of tomorrow. Our MBDS graduates will be prepared to contribute new analytic tools and methods in order to mine extensive biomedical datasets for previously unimagined opportunities to improve human health.

We appreciate your interest in the Master of Science in Biomedical Data Science program and look forward to hearing from you.
