Collaborative Research Opportunities at FDA

MS students can train at US Food and Drug Administration to learn more about Regulatory Science research in bioinformatics and genomics. One key project that many bioinformatics students currently are involved with is the High-performance Integrated Virtual Environment (HIVE). HIVE is a cloud-based environment optimized for the storage and analysis of extra-large data, such as biomedical data, clinical data, next-generation sequencing (NGS) data, mass spectrometry files, confocal microscopy images, post-market surveillance data, medical recall data, and many others. HIVE provides secure web access for authorized users to deposit, retrieve, annotate and compute on Big Data, and to analyze the outcomes using web user interfaces. Please contact Dr. Raja Mazumder ( for details.


Scholarships and Other Financial Aid

For students intending to follow the M.S. thesis option, part-time research assistantships may be available after the first semester. These assistantships are provided based on the merit, faculty recommendations and availability of funds in the laboratories. Some assistantships also provide for 3 credits of tuition remission per semester. Information on other types of graduate student financial aid may be obtained from the GW Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships.
