The Brandeis Quantitative Biology Program is an innovative training program that prepares the next generation of interdisciplinary scientists. The cross-disciplinary training encourages and facilitates future collaboration among graduate students. For students interested in Soft Materials research, the QB Program can provide specialization that supplements graduate study in one of the six participating Ph.D. programs: biochemistry and biophysics, chemistry, computer science, molecular and cell biology, neuroscience, and physics.

Those who choose the QB track will receive a Ph.D. degree in their chosen discipline with an additional specialization in quantitative biology. This approach provides students with modern discipline-bridging training. At the same time, the student earns a Ph.D. credential in a recognized traditional discipline; a credential that is valuable in the job market.
