Bioinformatics Graduate Program

Giving data new life

Learn to translate and transform biological data into life-enhancing discoveries when you earn a graduate degree in bioinformatics through the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering in Indianapolis.

Deepen your knowledge of computational biology and develop skills that apply to creating new cancer therapies, designing medical devices, making research breakthroughs about the human genome, and helping food crops thrive.

Bridging the gap between science and industry, you can take biological data to places it’s never been, using technology to increase our understanding of life and how to improve it.

“After graduation, our students are on the way to achieving their dreams. That’s what we promise them.”

Huanmei Wu, former Department of BioHealth Informatics Chair

At the center of biological science research

Studying Bioinformatics at IUPUI puts you where you want to be: on a campus with a strong health care focus. Our students and faculty use emerging technologies in research projects that explore the frontiers of science. Bioinformatics is a discipline with tremendous impact and significant research initiatives in Indiana and at IUPUI.

The Regenstrief Institute, the IU School of Medicine, the IU Simon Cancer Center, and many other health care schools, programs, and centers make IUPUI a leader in cross-disciplinary research. You’ll work one-on-one with faculty who are international experts in their fields. Our biopharmaceutical partners (Eli Lilly, Dow Agro, and others) offer opportunities for internships, sponsorships, and collaborative research.
