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. candidates joined us in Fall 2016, and our second class of 7 Ph.D. candidates joined us in Fall 2017. 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, 2017 to join the class of students entering the QBioS PhD program in August 2018.
