Read profiles of our PhD students to learn about their experience and research. 

More Information

The Columbia University Department of Systems Biology invites applications from students interested in pursuing careers at the frontiers of modern biology. You will learn to apply powerful, multidisciplinary approaches and address critical biological questions from the perspective of complex genomic and molecular systems.

PhD education at Columbia stresses the importance of high-throughput experimentation, quantitative analysis of large biological data sets, and innovative technology development. Whether your primary interest is in experimental or computational research in systems biology, the experience you gain will prepare you to participate in cutting-edge science that integrates the two.

More Information

This year’s application deadline is December 1, 2019.

Columbia's Coronavirus Resource Center
Clinicians and researchers at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center are global leaders in responding to COVID-19. In addition to being at the forefront of the clinical and scientific response to the virus, CUIMC is committed to keeping patients and the CUIMC community informed about COVID-19. Information is updated throughout each day as the impact of the virus changes locally and nationally.
Decoding and Targeting RNA with CRISPR
Xuebing Wu, PhD, joined the Department of Systems Biology in the fall of 2018, with a joint appointment in the Department of Medicine’s Cardiology Division. He also is a member of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and the Data Science Institute, and his lab straddles basic science and computational biology. In this faculty Q+A, we learn how the Wu lab is making an impact in novel therapeutics. At the center of Dr. Wu's research interests is understanding the fundamental principles of gene regulation in human cells through integrative genomics approaches.
