Welcome to CMCB!
Established in 2005, Center for Mathematical & Computational Biology (CMCB) is focus on building a research and training environment dedicated to mathematical and computational biology. CMCB faculties possess diverse backgrounds and work on a variety of scientific questions. Their research work aims at the mathematical representation, treatment and modeling of biological processes, using mathematical and computational techniques and tools.
CMCB Director Qing Nie Featured in TheScientist article "New School" to Discuss the Future of Graduate Program Involving Interdisciplinary Collaboration
In the most recent issue of TheScientist, CMCB Director Qing Nie explained why graduate programs at the interface of quantitative and biological sciences set the stage for more interdisciplinary collaboration. “We believe the traditional training programs either for math or biology are not sufficient to produce the type of students that can best work in the areas of mathematical, computational, and physical biology.” Qing Nie helped launch the mathematical and computational biology (MCB) graduate program at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) in January 2007.
