The CIHR/MSFHR Bioinformatics Training Program is a scholarship program for students who wish to undertake a MSc or PhD in Bioinformatics at either SFU or UBC.

Degrees available:

  • MSc

Campus: Burnaby

Please consult the departmental website for admission requirements.


In order to be accepted into the program, you must also be accepted into an affiliated graduate studies program at one of our two affiliated universities: University of British Columbia or Simon Fraser University. Acceptance by a graduate studies program can happen before or after your acceptance by the Program. We prefer to receive applications directly to the Program before you apply to a graduate studies program.
