Harvard Training Program in Bioinformatics Applied to Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism


We announce a request for applications for NIH T32-DK110919 with an intended start date of January 1st, 2022.

The goal of the program is to train post-doctoral MD, MD-PhD, or PhD investigators for careers in bioinformatics applied to diabetes, obesity, and metabolism. This T32 aims to attract investigators experienced in mathematics, statistics, computational biology and bioinformatics to the analysis and interpretation of genomic, epigenomic, proteomic, metabolomic, clinical or other big data to extract valuable knowledge related to metabolic disease.

Funding is from January through August 2022 Awards cover salary, travel to professional meetings, and other training-related expenses.

Applicants must be nominated by a mentor in either bioinformatics or diabetes/obesity/metabolism who is an independently funded investigator, and who has arranged for a collaborative mentorship structure with a co-mentor in the alternate discipline (please see attached table for the general research approach of T32 faculty).

Any questions as to eligibility for this particular T32 can be directed to the Training Program Director, Dr. Jose Florez (, or its Co-Director, Dr. Chirag Patel (
