Welcome to the Program in Systems Biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
Our program is one of the newest initiatives on campus and aims to explore the mechanisms and principles of biological complexity. This is an exciting time for systems biology, with rapid technological advances in many fields including genomics, computational biology, imaging, mass-spectroscopy and bioinformatics. Research in the program develops and leverages technological breakthroughs in these areas to explore the biology of complex systems. Today’s scientific research in general, and systems biology in particular, is increasingly multi-disciplinary. Therefore, we aim to create an intellectually diverse environment where combining different fields is encouraged and where students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty from different backgrounds work together in a collegial and interactive atmosphere.
Please browse through our website to learn more about our ongoing research, find recent publications and news items, upcoming speakers in our Seminar series, or visit us at the UMass Worcester campus.
