We conduct collaborative research on all aspects of quantitative medicine and health care. Approaches include mathematical modeling and simulation of biomedically relevant systems and the analysis and integration of heterogeneous data sets covering all scales, from molecules to populations. Center for Quantitative always has opportunities for talented and motivated staff at all levels, from high school students to faculty. Please see our current opportunities.

|The 19th Annual Workshop on Computational Cell Biology will be sponsored by the Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling (CCAM) at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine on June 11-14, 2018. This is an intense hands-on course designed to enable cell biologists and biophysicists to develop models of their experimental system using Virtual Cell and COPASI software systems. View the flyer.

|Dr. Luis Sordo Vieira of Center for Quantitative Medicine at UConn Health, was one of the two winners in the non-student category of the poster competition at the Latinx in the mathematical sciences at UCLA poster session. The title of the poster was “A multi-scale agent-based model of tumor growth: The role of Iron and the tumor microenvironment.”
|Drs. Reinhard Laubenbacher and Pedro Mendes of the Center for Quantitative Medicine, and Dr. Anna Dongari-Bagtzoglou of the Division of Periodontology UConn School of Dental Medicine, have been awarded over $1.69 million over the next four years from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for “Control of heterogeneous microbial communities using model-based multi-objective optimization” (1R01GM127909-01).
|Picture the slime you used to play with as a child — the gooey putty that adhered to the floor, table or even walls of your home, much to the chagrin of your parents. Now imagine that slime is actually a community of microbes – that’s what a biofilm is, and instead of sticking to the floor, these films stick to parts of our bodies and various surfaces and can cause infections.
