What is Quantitative Life Sciences?

Quantitative Life Sciences is the broad application of mathematical, computational, and other quantitative methods to study biological systems at all scales - from single molecules to the environment. It is part of a rapidly expanding field that includes specializations such as systems biology, bioinformatics, biophysics, medical informatics, computational biology, computational pharmacology, computational neuroscience, and mathematical biology.

Quantitative life sciences brings together medicine and physical sciences

Quantitative Life Science researchers recognize that the most important and challenging problems in biology, medicine, and the environment cannot be solved without a highly interdisciplinary approach that will advance the evolving landscape of the life sciences.
