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.
