Spencer Krichevsky is accepted to the Stony Brook University Scholars in Biomedical Sciences program.


The Biomedical Informatics Department is excited to announce that Spencer Krichevsky, a Ph.D. student with BMI, has been accepted into the highly selective, and competitive, SBU Scholars in Biomedical Sciences program!

The purpose of this one-year trainee program track is to engage graduate students in translational medicine and to promote an understanding of the presentation, progression and treatment of diseases related to their area of thesis research.

Trainees enter this one-year program during their second or third year of graduate studies (after their thesis project has been proposed) in one of Stony Brook University’s PhD granting programs and remain in the track beyond the program’s structured year and until graduation.

In addition to the educational benefits to the students who are admitted into the SBMS certificate program, the expectation is that the track will function as a catalyst to bring scientists and clinicians together and encourage the development of translational research fusion programs. More specifically, the program’s aim is to facilitate interfacing and collaboration of the students with clinical and translational researchers and help to move basic research discoveries into the clinical setting.

Congratulations to Spencer on achieving this tremendous recognition, and adding to the growing list of achievements by our BMI students.
