Welcome to QBioS.   The Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Quantitative Biosciences (QBioS) at Georgia Tech was established in 2015, our inaugural class of 9 Ph.D. students joined us in Fall 2016, our second class of 7 Ph.D. students joined us in Fall 2017, and our newest class of 9 Ph.D. students joined us in fall 2018. QBioS now has over 50 participating program faculty representing 6 participating Schools within the College of Sciences.  We welcome applications from students interested in innovative research on living systems building upon a foundation of rigorous and flexible training. The QBioS program will prepare a new generation of researchers for quantitative challenges, new discoveries, and fulfilling careers at the interface of the physical, mathematical, computational and biological sciences. Apply by December 1, 2018 to join the class of students entering the QBioS PhD program in August 2019.  

News & Events

Georgia Tech physicist Jennifer Curtis explains.
The Quantitative Biosciences Ph.D. is proud to welcome its third cohort to the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Our second-year cohort students have all been matched with research advisors. They are assembling their committees and preparing for their first committee meetings, to be held in October 2018.
As the QBioS program enters its third year, our first cohort of students are making progress on their doctoral thesis proposals, with a variety of interesting topics.
We have many exciting plans in place for the year, including expanded, bilingual instructional materials for the ‘Foundations’ course (in MATLAB and Python), a Hands-On Workshop in Quantitative Biosciences in Spring 2019, as well as our first Thesis Dissertation Defense.
