Who Should Apply?

The goal of the Quantitative Bioscience & Biomedical Engineering focus area is to provide students with backgrounds in the Physical, Mathematical, Computational or Engineering Sciences the opportunity to employ their analytical skills and exploit new measurement technologies to construct novel insights into human biology. The focus area will also allow those with Life Science training, newly exposed to role of quantitative technologies, to make a transition towards research that uses these technologies or develops new applications.We acknowledge that undergraduate students are unlikely to have extensive training in both the analytical skills and the biological skills. Thus, we encourage outstanding students in either the quantitative or biological disciplines with a desire to learn the other to apply. Our curriculum has the flexibility to allow students to be extended in some areas, while filling gaps in others.
