About Us

The Institute for Quantitative Biology promotes interdisciplinary research and instruction at the interface of the computational and life sciences by facilitating collaboration among faculty of the University together with the community at large. The Institute provides the life science scholar, presented by the ever accelerating technological advances, with resources to meet the challenges of the coming decade and provides the computational scientist a resource of complex and meaningful problems whose solutions provide answers of value to our society's health and well-being.

The Institute for Quantitative Biology at East Tennessee State University was established by the Tennessee Board of Regents in May of 2004, building upon a rich history of cooperation between the Departments of Biological Sciences and Mathematics. Today the Institute membership spans six colleges: Arts and Sciences, Business and Technology, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Public Health.
