Program Location

UConn Health, 263 Farmington Avenue, Farmington, CT 06032

Program Background

10-week, in-residence, intensive summer research program, focused on modeling and simulation in systems biology, for U.S. citizen or permanent resident undergraduate students from around the United States and Puerto Rico. It will provide participants with a broad view of available career opportunities for mathematical scientists in academia, industry, and government. Participants will have the opportunity to expand their professional network of peers and mentors.

Graduate Level Training

The Center for Quantitative Medicine faculty teach, mentor, and advise predoctoral students in UConn Health's Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Science in the Cell Analysis and Modeling concentration. The goal is to provide participants with rigorous cross training in areas of mathematical, computational sciences, and systems biology areas to develop transdisciplinary scientists. Graduate students come from diverse backgrounds. Students take courses, attend seminars, and work on interdisciplinary research projects to broaden and strengthen their abilities to do quantitative research that is aligned with a particular faculty member mentor.
