About QB

The Quantitative Bioscience & Biomedical Engineering focus area within the Program in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences at OHSU encompasses studies in multiple academic areas including: biomedical engineering, bioinformatics, genomics and other computational biology, as well as technology development and application in biochemistry, biophysics, cell, molecular, systems & chemical biology,  genetics and  pharmacology.

Quantitative Biosciences & Biomedical Engineering utilizes measurement techniques, mathematical equations, and computational resources to answer fundamental biological questions. The goal of the quantitative bioscience research focus is to train students, who have an undergraduate degree in physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science and/or mathematics, to apply their quantitative skills to the most challenging biological problems of today.

Students interested in Quantitative Biosciences & Biomedical Engineering  research should apply through the Program in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences at OHSU.
