preparing the next generation of scientists
The Quantitative Biology Program (QB) at Brandeis University is an interdisciplinary program for science Ph.D. students. The program's goal is to prepare the next generation of scientists working at the interface of the physical and biomedical sciences.
Ph.D. students in QB are trained to apply quantitative experimental techniques, physical models and mathematical analysis to important problems in biomedical research. Students are given a rigorous background in their chosen scientific discipline, and at the same time are trained to work effectively as members of the cross-disciplinary teams that are essential to emerging modalities of scientific investigation.
