The Interfaces Graduate Training Program at UCSD was established to bring together faculty and students from the biological, engineering, physical and health sciences in 2005. Our program provides unique interdisciplinary graduate training at the interfaces between the biological, health, physical and engineering sciences. The training program has been made possible with the support of grants from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) at NIH.
The program's goals are:
1. Focused Collaboration across participating degree program at UCSD to train a new generation of cross-disciplinary scientist.
2. State-of-the-art Interdisciplinary Training through a technology-centered hands-on graduate laboratory course curriculum.
3. Novel Emphasis on Research aimed at integrative and quantitative analysis across multiple scales of biological organization from molecule to organism in health and disease.
