Step 3: Cutting Edge Interdisciplinary Research
Our BCB program provides a uniquely interdisciplinary research experience for our students. The interdisciplinary focus of BCB is facilitated by a lab rotation designed by the student and his or her committee, which provides a research experience outside the major focus area of the student.
Faculty Advisors from Across Disciplines
Students benefit from having faculty advisors that work across disciplines. It is common for mathematicians, statisticians or computer scientists to be co-principal investigators on research grants with biologists. The synergy among the three disciplines is unprecedented.
