The Computational Molecular Biology program is the cooperative effort of ten outstanding research departments at the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  Due in large part to the exceptional research of the CMB faculty, the University of Washington is ranked in the top ten in Genetics / Genomics / Bioinformatics, Computer Science, and Bioengineering by US News. 

The CMB certificate program is open to all PhD students enrolled in the participating departments.  The certificate program not only allows enrolled students to receive formal recognition for their work, but facilitates connections and provides a forum for the entire CMB community to showcase work by students and faculty, and to discuss open problems and trends.
