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.
