The QBS program seeks to train highly qualified students for productive careers in biomedical research and teaching through the completion of an interdisciplinary PhD degree in bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology. Our philosophy is that the modern biomedical researcher must be able to speak more than one language to successfully collaborate in a highly multidisciplinary environment.
