Bioinformatics PHD: UCSF, UCLA, UCSD, WashU


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I interviewed for bioinformatics programs at UCSF, UCLA, UCSD, and WashU. I'm am fairly confident I will be accepted so I wanted to get people's opinions on their programs.

I completed my masters in clinical research and data science. I am volunteering in the lab of a PI I am interested in having as an advisor. I am interested in multiomics, knowledge networks(HetNets), clinical/medical informatics, methods in single cell analysis such as cytof.

All these programs are incredible and I feel very fortunate to be in this position.

Thanks!

Well, three of these universities are in California, so there is a hint there of what kind of climate you prefer. Which of these universities is conducting research that matches your interests the closest?

I'd recommend asking current graduate students for more about their experience. I'd also recommend looking at the City Guide forum  to see if you can get a better understanding for all 4 programs. I don't think you can go wrong with your decision though.

Recently, WashU also released its plans to increase its reputation by leveraging more of its resources to elevate the graduate student experience. Might be worth a look: https://strategicplan.artsci.wustl.edu
