Welcome to the Quantitative and Computational Biosciences Ph.D. Program at Baylor College of Medicine. It is now widely anticipated that quantitative modeling, advanced computing and data science will transform the biomedical research enterprise and practice of medicine in the coming decades as fundamentally as biochemistry and molecular biology transformed it during the past century. To begin your journey in this new scientific frontier consider joining QCB, an inter-institutional program at the heart of the Texas Medical Center/Rice University, the world’s largest complex of biomedical research institutions and hospitals. You will have the opportunity to learn from the world’s leading scientists and pursue Ph.D.-level research in some of the best laboratories in the world. Our cooperative spirit, respect for diversity and family-like atmosphere both within our program and across the Texas Medical Center/Rice University neighborhood helps catalyze collaborations that are the key to addressing the most important biological questions and biomedical problems from a multidisciplinary perspective. I invite you to visit our faculty web pages and those describing our Ph.D. program, and to feel free to contact us with any questions about the QCB program and research and training opportunities here.

Sincerely,

Aleksandar Milosavljevic, Ph.D.
