About

The Computational and Systems Biology (CSB) program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) seeks to train a new breed of quantitative biologists who can take advantage of technologies at the leading edge of science and engineering to tackle fundamental and applied problems in biology.

Overview

About the Program

Our students acquire:

  • a background in modern molecular/cell biology
  • a foundation in quantitative/engineering disciplines to enable them to create new technologies as well as apply existing methods
  • and exposure to subjects emphasizing application of quantitative approaches to biological problems.  

The Computational and Systems Biology (CSB) program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is highly selective with typical class sizes 6 to 8+ students. About half of our graduate students are women, about one quarter are international students, and about 10% are under-represented minorities.

Students complete most coursework during the first year, while exploring research opportunities through 1- or 2-month research rotations.  A faculty academic advisor assigned in the first year provides guidance and advice. 

Students choose a research advisor in spring or early summer of year 1 and develop a Ph.D. research project in with their advisor and input from a thesis committee chosen by the student.
