Accelerating Biological Discovery Through Innovation

The mission of the Quantitative and Systems Biology Graduate Program is to accelerate biological discovery through innovative, interdisciplinary science and engineering of living systems and their properties, which emerge from their structure, mechanisms, organization, and dynamics.

QSB core values guide how we organize and run our program. They are:

  • the unity of biology;
  • innovation and interdisciplinarity in science and engineering;
  • quantitative approaches to inquiry;
  • a focus on information, organization, dynamics and emergent phenomena in living systems; and
  • integration of data with models to explain and predict biological phenomena.
