Sister programs and research centers at Princeton
From the humanities to the sciences, Princeton is a world leader in research. This is reflected in a number of strong programs at Princeton that have interests closely shared with QCN. Taken together, these programs form a unique and critical mass of researchers that share a common focus on quantitative approaches to problems in biological science.
- The Program in Quantitative and Computational Biology (QCB) focuses on bioinformatics, genomics, and quantitative approaches to cellular and molecular biology.
- The Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics (PACM) conducts applied mathematics research, including numerical and computational methods, with many of its members interested in applying such methods to biological problems.
- The Program in Biophysics studies cellular, molecular, developmental and neuro biology as it interfaces with the physical sciences.
- The Center for the Study of Brain, Mind, and Behavior focuses on cognitive neuroscience and human brain imaging using methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
- The Princeton Neuroscience Institute brings together all neuroscience research at Princeton, from developmental to systems to cognitive neuroscience. All members of QCN are also part of the Program in Neuroscience.
Seminars typically have audiences that are a mixture of members from all the groups, and ideas flow freely across all groups. Many members of one program also form part of another.
