We are now seeking Ph.D students in Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering and Medicine. The goal of Quantitative Biology (qBio) is to discover the organizational principles of living systems. These organizational principles take the form of mathematical models that can be used to predict biological phenomena. A defining pillar of the qBio approach is tight integration of experiment and theory; biological complexity necessitates empirical testing and subsequent improvement of predictive theory. The goal of the qBio PhD specialization is to train students to use quantitative methods to explore the connection between molecular interactions at the cell level and the resulting behavior at the physiological level.
