Summer 2009 Research Fellowships
UCSB Center for Bio-Image Informatics began offering fellowships to qualified undergraduate students
for a summer research program in Biology and Information Technology.
The newly established Center for Bioimage Informatics is supported by
the National Science Foundation and its mission is to establish a searchable digital library for
bio-molecular images and to develop new information processing
technologies for a better understanding of complex biological processes
at the cellular and molecular level.
The summer scholars will
interact with researchers and faculty involved in this project as well
as participate in various activities designed to develop the skills
necessary for success at the graduate level.
This 8 week program ran from June 23th through August 14th, 2009.
