Interdisciplinary Quantitative (IQ) Biology Graduate Certificate is a program through CU Boulder's BioFrontiers Institute. The certificate is earned in concordance with a PhD from one of CU Boulder's academic departments. Students learn Interdisciplinary Quantitative skills, while also gaining in-depth knowledge of their field through their degree-granting PhD program with one of our eleven partner academic departments.
Through IQ Biology, students learn the essential competencies demonstrated by knowledgeable, and well-rounded researchers who collaborate effectively across disciplines. These competencies are attained through cross-departmental lab rotations, courses, interdisciplinary projects, outreach activities, and science engagement.
