Computational skills are increasingly important in nearly all fields of biomedical research at the Hutch and beyong. Coding for Cancer connects students with computational biologists, teaches hands-on skills, and how the opportunity to give feedback that will influence the future of the program. No prior coding experience is necessary. Selected participants will receive a stipend.
This program is a collaboration among science education staff and scientists who are active computational biology researchers.
This course will teach the R programming language and environment. The program will accomodate a range of prior knowledge. We will work with students who do not have access to technology to gain necessary equipment and internet for the duration of the program.
The program is speficically designed for students from underrepresented in biomedical science as defined by the National Institutes of Health.
Jose, an immigrant scientist from the Phillippines, moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington where he majored in Math and Neurobiology. Currently, he is an MD-PhD student at the UW School of Medicine studying cancer using genomics and RNA biology.
