FUTURE-MINDS-QB is an NIH-funded training program that bridges between master's programs at Fisk University and doctoral programs at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Our doctoral bridge program is designed to nurture a diverse future generation of active minds specifically in the areas of biomedical data science and quantitative biology, where quantitative biology encompasses bioinformatics, computational biology, genomic biology, and biophysics.

We accept applications from under-represented individuals for the two-year master's phase at Fisk University, seeking coursework, wrap-around professional development and mentoring for successful transition to the PhD at UIUC. At Fisk, master's students will acquire essential research and professional skills that prepare them for PhD study in biomedical data science or quantitative biology. For further information, please visit our program website.

We encourage early submission of applications. Accepted trainees will receive an annual stipend, travel allowance, and full support for tuition & fees. US citizenship or permanent resident status is required. Please submit your Cover Letter, CV, Personal Statement, and Transcripts using our online application.
