Noblis and Johns Hopkins Announce Master’s Fellowship

You can't read about the future of healthcare IT and biotechnology without seeing the word "bioinformatics." It's regularly listed as one of the fastest growing career fields and one of the most highly sought after skills for many biotech and pharma companies and CROs... a fact that Johns Hopkins University and Noblis recognize.

Noblis and Johns Hopkins University (JHU) recently announced a unique master’s fellowship that will use Noblis real-world research projects to educate and train a select pool of graduate students in the field of bioinformatics.

“Johns Hopkins University and Noblis share an interest in developing the workforce in the field of bioinformatics. This partnership will provide select students an opportunity to use the knowledge and skills that they have acquired in the classroom,” said Dr. Kristina Obom, senior associate program chair of Johns Hopkins’ Master of Science in Bioinformatics program.

“Noblis looks forward to the Johns Hopkins University students working side-by-side in the Noblis Computational Biology and Chemistry Facility,” said Dr. Catherine Campbell, principal molecular biologist at Noblis and principal investigator on this project. “These students will help Noblis researchers to develop practical solutions to cutting-edge bioinformatics problems. ”

Selected JHU students will conduct research at Noblis in fulfillment of the requirements for the Independent Research Project (IRP) in the MS in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics masters programs at JHU.  The students will conduct 35 hours of research each week during the semester.  The students will present their work at the end of the semester and at the annual research symposium.
