The NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology is a place where mathematical scientists and developmental biologists intensely work together on a broad range of questions arising from investigations into the biology of animal development. Our team of investigators is studying high dimensional and dynamic phenomena by using imaging, sequencing, and other technologies. Our aim is to make important new discoveries about the emergent properties of growth and development.

The Center also provides activities and programming to stimulate life and mathematical scientists from around the nation and the globe to apply mathematical inquiry to the study of growth and development. This involves interdisciplinary training of the next generation of scientists, providing research and training opportunities for established scientists eager to enrich their research programs, and fostering new collaborations across traditional disciplines. The Center seeks to build and sustain a culture of interdisciplinary, collaborative team science.

NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology is one of four NSF-Simons Research Centers for Mathematics of Complex Biological Systems (MathBioSys). The other three are the Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology (SCMB) headquartered at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Center for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Biology at Harvard University, the Center for Multiscale Cell Fate Research at the University of California, Irvine.
