Bioinformatics provides interdisciplinary training for doctoral students to conduct cutting-edge research in biomedical disciplines. The minor imparts knowledge of bioinformatics methods for solving genomic, proteomic, and other biomedical and health-related problems.
The Biostatistics minor will complement a student's major area of study with concepts underlying the scientific method and applications of data collection, analysis, interpretation, and reporting of results. This minor emphasizes the design and analysis of experimental and observational studies, theory of probability and statistics, and statistical computing.
The Business of Biomedical Sciences minor will allow our trainees to be highly competitive for the careers in the 21st century biomedical workforce that require doctoral education. We take advantage of the existing structure of the IBMG Program for Ph.D. study for this minor.
Providing an interdisciplinary training environment for pre-doctoral students, this minor is beneficial for those who wish to pursue a career in cancer research.
Cardiovascular Science provides students with a comprehensive background and understanding of integrative cardiac, vascular, renal, and pulmonary (patho) biology. This minor provides students with a wide variety of options to advance their education in the area with advanced didactic coursework, as well as student driven journal clubs.
Clinical Research Minor
This minor includes a minimum of 12 credit hours (9 hours of core coursework, and 3 hours of elective coursework). Students must complete three of the following core courses:
- Clinical Research Methods (G660);
- Clinical Trials (G661);
- Introduction to Research Ethics (G504) or Ethical and Policy Issues in International Research (P555);
- Biostatistics I (B651), or alternative graduate biostatistics course for a total of 9 credit hours;
- One elective course (3 credit hours).
If a student has completed any of the core courses as part of their PhD program, an approved elective course may be substituted for a core course. This minor offers clinical research training to basic/translational research scientists.
For more information, please contact Dr. Kroenke.
The minor in Diabetes and Obesity promotes the training of scientists whose research will develop new understandings of the basis of the disease and its complications, thereby speeding the discovery of more effective therapies.
Health Informatics enables students to solve health information challenges with informatics approaches. This interdisciplinary training will provide knowledge of health IT theory, its methods, and application to improving information systems in healthcare.
First semester IBMG Courses-- BIOMED I, II, and III-- have been approved by the Indiana University Graduate School to act as 9 credits of a 12 credit Life Sciences minor IF the program selected does not require those three courses as core courses.
Translational Science trains researchers move easily between the research lab and clinical medicine to rapidly advance and apply new discoveries in patient care. A key component of this training program consists of training basic and clinical scientists, side-by-side, to provide a common set of experiences and familiarity with each other’s research language.
