Top of Class: Quantitative Bioscience at UT

As a service to the university, NIMBioS has unveiled a new Quantitative Bioscience website showcasing the multiple routes to success for graduate education in quantitative bioscience at the University of Tennessee.

With 20 different research areas to explore, UT has become a world-leader in quantitative bioscience disciplines. The website highlights each of these areas.

The site describes in detail the various pathways for developing a graduate program in quantitative bioscience and includes options within the Division of Biology, Department of Mathematics, UT-ORNL Graduate School of Genome Science and Technology, Tickle College of Engineering, Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education and UT’s Institute of Agriculture. 

UT has a long history as one of the world’s largest collections of faculty in quantitative bioscience, located in a variety of departments and research labs across campus. The site includes a list of 60 UT faculty who are associated with quantitative bioscience research.

To provide evidence of the success of quantitative bioscience education at UT, another page showcases student success stories, with a listing of the PhD students who have obtained their degrees under the mentorship of faculty affiliated with quantitative bioscience, along with their position following graduation, whether in academia, government or industry.

Convergence research across mathematics, statistics, computational and data science is building new frameworks and novel ways for problem solving in the life sciences. Over the past decade, NIMBioS has fostered these efforts to develop cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary collaborative connections that address the vast array of challenging questions at the interface of the quantitative and life sciences.
