This IGERT grant began in July 2006 and ended in June 2013. During that time, our goal was to create a new cadre of young scientists who seamlessly exploited the power of the quantitative training common in physics, mathematics and engineering to the analysis of biological problems. Trainees
were involved in state-of-the-art research projects that benefited from the highly interactive and collaborative environment at Brandeis University. Research projects dealt with networks of signal transduction and transcription,
neuronal networks, biological oscillators and integrators, and
cognitive processes and behavior. Trainees learned, developed and employed computational
methods of data analysis and modeling.
We remain committed to the priniciples of graduate training throughout our many programs including:
Biochemistry & Biophysics, Molecular and Cell Biology, Neuroscience, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Mathematics, Computer Science, Biotechnology, Genetic Counseling, Quantitative Biology.
