The Quantitative Biosciences Consortium (QBC) brings together under one umbrella five PhD graduate programs at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to advance education and innovative research at the interface of the biological sciences and the quantitative sciences.
The consortium promotes curriculum development and faculty and student engagement in the quantitative biosciences. It provides a common physical space for graduate students across the five programs to meet, discuss, and debate ideas. It helps support the financial needs of graduate students in the quantitative biosciences, thus helping free these students to focus their energies on addressing important biological questions.
QBC gives a strong, unified voice to biological and quantitative sciences graduate education—and research—at UCSF.
