Areas of Concentration: Quantitative and Computational Life Sciences

Quantitative and Computational Life Sciences. (Click here to see the faculty involved)   The trend in science is to involve teams of scientists in interdisciplinary fields that create  solutions to problems that affect the peoples' lives and welfare. Many such  problems may be addressed through  connecting mathematics to biology, medicine, computing, and other sciences.  Thus, building bridges between areas of expertise in the scientific community is recognized as an essential direction for current and future scientific efforts.

Current programs already provide a strong traditional foundation focused in mathematics or computation or each science separately. But more recent initiatives have provided Claremont students with the kind of hands-on use of mathematics and computation as laboratory tools in a team-based context not traditionally found in the classroom.  Claremont aims to develop future scientific leaders in new interdisciplinary fields.  [read more >>]
