Institute for Quantitative Biomedicine (IQB)

The IQB brings basic and applied researchers together with clinicians pursuing grand challenges in biomedical research using quantitative tools of measurement and analysis from chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, and statistics. 

The Institute is also the home to an interdisciplinary graduate program committed to training the next generation of researchers expert in the quantitative sciences for productive and rewarding careers at the interface with biology and medicine.

News and Announcements

Congratulations to Helen Berman for her election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences!

In the company of President Obama, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayer, and 200 other distinguished individuals, Helen Berman is being honored for her seminal role as a structural biologist, co-founding the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and helping guide the development of additional data archives, enabling researchers world-wide to easily access structural data and analysis tools from any digital device.

Congratulations to Sagar Khare for his promotion to Associate Professor with Tenure!

Sagar and his group are creating exciting breakthroughs, redesigning nature to create useful new proteins.  

IQB Welcomes 3 New Faculty!

Learn about Sijian Wang (a biostatistician), Arek Kulczyk (a single-particle cryo-electron microscopist), and Jason Kaelber (Director, Rutgers New Jersey CryoEM/CryoET Core Facility) here.

Graduate Program Renamed and Recharged

Graduate Program is renamed and recharged to better align with our mission of bringing the quantitative sciences to biology and medicine. Computational Biology and Molecular Biophysics (CBMB) is now Quantitative Biomedicine (QB)! 

Development of New Courses

New crash courses, mini-courses, and full courses are in development. They are designed to provide students, staff, and faculty with key educational offerings currently missing in the sciences at Rutgers. Please contact us if you have content suggestions or if you would like to be involved in teaching.

Recent educational opportunities included a Crash Course on Anti-Cancer Immune Checkpoint Therapies: Immunology, Structural Biology, and Clinical Oncology and the Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology Boot Camp: Summer Session 2017.
