Center for Human Genetics & Genomics Computational Biology

The Computational Biology Initiative hosted by NYU Langone’s Center for Human Genetics and Genomics is a joint venture between NYU Langone, NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU Center for Data Science, and NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

This developing academic program spans NYU departments, centers, institutes, and schools to bring together interested faculty and trainees and create new opportunities for collaborative research and training.

The first phase of our initiative is the establishment of a monthly Computational Biology Colloquium featuring talks from noted leaders in the field, both local and elsewhere.

If you are interested in joining our email distribution list so that you can follow our progress, please email and we’ll be sure to add you.

Computational Biology and Medicine Colloquium

Events scheduled for 2020–21 will be hosted online. For questions about our colloquium, call Jessica Jaffe, administrative coordinator, at 212-263-8023.
