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. The Center for Quantitative Medicine always has opportunities for talented and motivated staff at all levels, from high school students to faculty.

- New $3M NIH Grant Targets Respiratory Infection with Math. ModelingNo one is ever pleasantly surprised to find mold growing on food that has been left in the fridge too long. But everyday there is plenty of mold around us that we don’t see, including hundreds of spores of some types of invisible mold that we unknowingly inhale. While this probably sounds pretty alarming and […]
- Ovarian Cancer Cells Hoard Iron to Fuel GrowthCancer cells tend to hoard iron, and ovarian cancer cells in particular. They take in more iron than normal cells, and they release less of it. UConn Health postdoctoral fellow in computational biology Anna Konstorum, director of the Center for Quantitative Medicine Reinhard Laubenbacher, and their colleagues wondered why. Perhaps cancer cells’ iron habit was a weakness […]
