Institute for Bioengineering, Biotechnology and Quantitative Biomedical Research (QB3)

During the last half-century, molecular genetics revolutionized biomedical research and gave rise to the biotechnology industry. During the next half-century, the application of the quantitative sciences - mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering - to Biosciences brings about a second revolution that promises to improve human health and create dynamic new technologies.

To catalyze these changes, the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3), a cooperative effort among three campuses of the University of California and private industry, harnesses the quantitative sciences to integrate our understanding of biological systems at all levels of complexity - from atoms and protein molecules to cells, tissues, organs and the entire organism. This long-sought integration allows scientists to attack problems that have been simply unapproachable before, setting the stage for fundamental new discoveries, new products and new technologies for the benefit of human health.
