Join the Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology (IQ Biology) PhD Program
The IQ Biology PhD Certificate is designed for students in life sciences, engineering, computer science, and applied mathematics who are interested in joining a network of interdisciplinary faculty and peers in academia and industry.
IQ Biology is a Graduate PhD Certificate through CU Boulder's BioFrontiers Institute. The certificate is earned in concordance with a CU Boulder degree-granting PhD program with a partner department. Students learn Interdisciplinary Quantitative skills, while also gaining in-depth knowledge of their field with one of our 13 partner departments, home to 16 PhD degree programs.
Through IQ Biology, students learn the essential competencies demonstrated by knowledgeable, and well-rounded researchers who collaborate effectively across disciplines. These competencies are attained in a number of ways, including cross-departmental lab rotations, courses, interdisciplinary projects, outreach activities, and science engagement.
