Graduate Studies in Mathematical,Computational and Systems Biology (MCSB)

Received from John Lowengrub, Director of Graduate Studies, MCSB Program

------------------------->8-------------------------------

I am writing to encourage you to apply to the graduate program in Mathematical,Computational and Systems Biology (MCSB) at UC Irvine.

We are looking for excellent students, with a variety of different backgrounds, who wish to work at the interface between the biological sciences, the

physical sciences, computer sciences and engineering. The graduate program in Mathematical,Computational and Systems Biology (MCSB) is designed

to meet the interdisciplinary training challenges of modern biology and to function in concert with existing departmental programs (Departmental

Option) or as an individually tailored program (Interdisciplinary Option) leading to a M.S. or Ph.D. degree.

 

The interdisciplinary degree option is new.

 

The degree program provides students with both opportunity for rigorous training towards research careers in areas related to systems biology and

flexibility through individualized faculty counseling on curricular needs, and access to a diverse group of affiliated faculty and research projects from member departments.

Current member departments include Biomedical Engineering, Biological Chemistry, Computer Science, Developmental and Cell Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Mathematics, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics,

Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Physics. The program emphasizes in-depthclassroom study, interdisciplinary research rotations, and individualized advising. The program is

administered by the Center for Complex Biological Systems, a National Institutes of Health National Center of Excellence in Systems Biology.

More information about the program, including how to apply, is available at http://www.mcsb.uci.edu.

 

A brochure with additional  program information is attached.
