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, and we now have four cohorts with over 30 total Ph.D. students. QBioS has more than 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 3, 2019 to join the class of students entering the QBioS Ph.D. program in August 2020.
