There is no application deadline, but students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible because suitable candidates are accepted on a rolling basis. A letter of recommendation is not required for Winter/Spring workshops and all online workshops, but a letter can be submitted as a supplement to an application. A link to the recommendation form can be found at the bottom of the page.
Be sure to add email@example.com to your email client’s “safe list” or address book to prevent our emails (including your possible acceptance) from being filtered into the spam folder.
Winter break workshops are online and in-person. The online Medicinal Chemistry (12/26-12/30) and online Medical Bioinformatics (12/26-12/30) workshops are $570 and run approximately 8am-4pm PST. The in-person, commuter-only workshops – Biomedical Research (Alameda, CA) and Cancer Research (Berkeley, CA) – run from 12/26-12/31 (~9am-5pm) and the tuition is $1590 (Cancer Research, Berkeley), and $1790 (Biomedical Research, Alameda).
Residential fees for the university-based workshops in the US (Cancer/Neuroscience/Immunology/Aging/Bioinformatics of Cancer/Developmental Biology/Astrobiology) are $3580. Residential tuition includes room and board, transportation to/from the airport (with restrictions), custom T shirt/lanyard/notebook/pen, weekend field trip and some recreational activities, and workshop materials. There are a limited number of non-residential commuter spots available for $2280 (includes lunch, T shirt/lanyard/notebook/pen and all activities). Molecular Biology of Cancer and Molecular Neuroscience workshops will be held 6/2-6/15 and 6/16-6/29 at UCB and 7/7-7/20 at UCSD. The Bioinformatics of Cancer workshops will be held 6/16-6/29 (UCB), 7/7-7/20 (UCSD) and 7/21-8/3 (Columbia). The Molecular Biology of Aging workshop is 6/18-7/1 at UCB, the Molecular Immunology workshop is 7/7-7/20 at UCSD, and Developmental Biology and Astrobiology workshops will be held 7/21-8/3 at Columbia.
Residential fees for the AI-Enhanced Bioinformatics workshop at Imperial College London are $4980 for a bed in a double room and $5600 for a single room. Residential tuition includes room and board, custom T shirt/lanyard/notebook/pen, weekend field trip and some recreational activities, and workshop materials. There are a limited number of non-residential commuter spots available for $3280 (includes lunch, T shirt/lanyard/notebook/pen and all activities).
There are four separate but concurrent sessions of Intro to Cellular and Molecular Medicine, one from 6-8:00am PST, one from 12-2:00pm PST, one from 5-7:00pm PST and one from 7-9:00pm PST. Similarly, there are two separate but concurrent sessions of the Medicinal Chemistry workshop, one from 8am-11am PST, and one from 2-5pm PST. The summer sessions of the Medical Bioinformatics workshop will be 2.5 hours in the morning, and 3 hours in the afternoon, and additional time is available for one-on-one project discussion with the instructor.
Tuition for the summer online workshops is as follows: the online Intro to Cellular and Molecular Medicine workshops (6/10-6/21) are $430, the online Medicinal Chemistry (7/8-7/19) workshops are $570, and tuition for the online Medical Bioinformatics workshops (6/24-7/6 and 7/8-7/19) are $1050.
