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 eleven partner departments.

Through the IQ Biology program, 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.
