About the Program

_MG_3257.jpg

The QB program leverages the strengths of existing Ph.D. programs at Brandeis by bringing graduate students from these programs together in a specialized curriculum and in co-curricular activities that are both designed to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by training in multi-disciplinary groups. 

Students are admitted to graduate study in one of the six participating Ph.D. programs: biochemistry and biophysics, chemistry, computer science, molecular and cell biology, neuroscience, and physics.

Those who choose the QB track will receive a Ph.D. degree in their chosen discipline with an additional specialization in quantitative biology. This approach provides students with modern discipline-bridging training. At the same time, the student earns a Ph.D. credential in a recognized traditional discipline; a credential that is valuable in the job market.
