SYBB Faculty

A professor and a student look at data together on a laptop.

Systems Biology and Bioinformatics professors are committed to the personal and professional success of every student. While they are passionate scholars and accomplished in their own fields, teaching is their number one priority. Small class sizes, accessible professors and a close-knit community create the kind of supporting, enriching environment that is rare. We are personally invested in seeking ways to help our students develop into strong, certified, leading professionals.

Students in the SYBB program have the opportunity to engage in research with our training faculty to supplement their learning and prepare for careers in the field.  We have over 40 trainers with primary appointments in 12 different departments at CWRU, Cleveland Clinic, and University Hospitals.
