Final approval for a "stand-alone" PhD option in Mathematical, Computational, and Systems Biology is expected soon!
With this change, students who matriculate in Fall 2014 will, upon completion of their gateway year of training (in 2015), choose to continue their studies either as a member of an affiliated department, or to remain an interdisciplinary trainee. In the latter case, the student would eventually receive a Ph.D. in Mathematical, Computational, and Systems Biology, after fulfilling program requirements specifically established by the program itself. More details will be available soon!
The MCSB program is proud to announce UCI-GPS (Graduate Professional Success), a new NIH-funded program for professional development of graduate students in the biomedical sciences. UCI is the only research institution in Southern California with such a program.
