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

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.
The IQB also works alongside The Center of Excellence in Mathematics and Science Education at ETSU.
We also frequently participate in workshops hosted by NIMBioS
