We are in the Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology Program and the Program in Molecular Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. We are also affiliated with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.

Interested? We are looking for postdocs and graduate students interested in developing creative new computational methods to investigate large genomic datasets.  Please contact us if you are interested in joining our group!
