The University of San Diego hosts and coordinates an international research experience for students (IRES) summer program in Bioinformatics at the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) in Stockholm, Sweden. SciLifeLab is a consortium of researchers from Sweden's top universities: the Karolinska Institute (KI), Stockholm University, The Royal Institute of Technology, and Uppsala University, with the goal of addressing the greatest challenges in the life sciences. SciLifeLab has put an emphasis on developing next-generation sequencing techniques, positioning the institute as a global leader in using 'omics' data and bioinformatics to advance human health. As an integrated member of a research group at SciLifeLab, you will perform 10 weeks of supervised research related to a common theme of advanced computational bioinformatics. You will be mentored by some of the world's leading bioinformaticians, which will prepare you for a career in bioinformatics, bioengineering, or related fields. Research projects include using bioinformatics techniques to understand cancer, aneurysms, nuclear biology, and exercise physiology.
