The Quantitative Sciences program currently offers four tracks for students to select from depending on their personal research interests: Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, and Quantitative Genomics. The research activities focus on developing and applying statistical and mathematical models in close collaboration with biomedical researchers. The mission of the Program in Quantitative Sciences is to train researchers who will contribute to biomedical research by developing new quantitative methods for the design and analysis of research studies and by formulating mathematical and statistical models of biologic systems, thereby contributing to our understanding of cancer biology and disease processes. The graduates from Quantitative Sciences program are highly sought after by biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and data science industry and academia.

“This ranking is a testament of the high quality research work and educational opportunities that our faculty and students have here at the GSBS,” said Program Director Liang Li, PhD.
