CEGS Bridges to Graduate School Post-Baccalaureate Program

Our “Bridges to Graduate School” (BGS) Post-Baccalaureate Program is a two-year scientific training opportunity for recent college graduates and post-baccalaureate students who are preparing to apply to graduate programs in genomics or systems biology. Our CEGS encompasses eight basic and clinical research groups from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Northeastern University.

This goal of this CEGS is to examine the effects of genetic and environmental perturbations on human cellular networks through diverse approaches of protein-protein interaction mapping, proteomics analyses, and transcriptional profiling. Our central hypothesis is that both human genetic variations and pathogens such as viruses induce disease by similarly influencing local and global properties of cellular networks. Our aim is to develop strategies to test this central network hypothesis to probe the structure and dynamics of disease-related networks in response to exogenous perturbations. The knowledge gained can develop models to interpret genome-wide genetic variations in human disease. Please download the application for a complete description of our CEGS program.
