FUTURE-MINDS-QB Doctoral Bridge Program in Quantitative Biology and Biomedical Data Science
I strongly support your mission and would be delighted to hear from those interested in gaining research experience in statistical genomics. Our group currently has projects in microbial sequence analysis, single cell RNA sequencing and a general interest in developing novel methods for biological discovery in genomics. Please see http://salzmanlab.stanford.edu/
My lab focuses on plant computational genomics, particularly forest trees. We integrate genome variation, transcriptomic, and epigenetics data to investigate how environment and genetics interact to yield phenotypes.
Happy to support the work of the BWCB network, in my roles as an Associate Professor, PI of a computational lab, Director of JHU's PhD Program in Computational Medicine, and Editor-in-Chief of PLOS Computational Biology.
My research focuses on the genetic basis of cancer disparities.
I am Director, Talent Acquisition for the Allen Institute. I am also a black woman. I'd like to be an ally and leverage my position within the research community to amplify the voices and contributions of those that have historically been voiceless and to support professional development opportunities for those that have historically been ignored.
I'm a computational biologist and geneticist at Embark Veterinary -- we do everything we can to advance dog health and wellness through genomics!

I'm a black guy, and I'm really interested in having more female folks in the comp-bio space.
I look forward to reading about your research. I just started my post-doc in computational immunology (simulating T-cell collectives). Feel free to reach out if you have questions or would like to connect!
Boston Women in Bioinformatics meetup group provides a platform for women and welcomes allies in bioinformatics for conversations, trainings, workshops, panels and much more, with an open mind!
I teach math and stats at a small Canadian college. My background is mathematical biology and number theory. I aim to amplify the voices of Black womxn in STEM by sharing their work in my classroom whenever possible
I teach a Computational Modeling course for 11th and 12th grade students at a high school in NYC, and I'm seeking lots of varied sources to contribute to what we see and do in the class. Students are especially interested in what kind of careers this work could connect to because they usually haven't thought about many of the topics in this class before! The class is offered through the science department at my school and is also focused on social justice topics once we get past some initial intro-to-coding work. This group seems amazing! And thank you for the things you have available for us to learn from! ❤️
I recently graduated with my PhD in Genome Sciences and now work as a computational biologist/data scientist at a biotech company.
I am happy to talk about applying to graduate school and transitioning from academia to biotech.

I am a professor of computer science - field that suffers from very poor diversity numbers, even if looking at gender alone. I am actively involved in mentoring undergraduates in computational biology research and I am looking to broaden the network from which I recruit students. Also, I am interested in using computational biology to help increase academic success and retention for students from under-represented groups. Finally, as an academic administrator, I am interested in fixing the end of the "academic pipeline" by helping scientists from underrepresented groups obtain faculty positions and receiving adequate support to ensure success.
