The Rutgers Center for Computational and Integrative Biology (CCIB) is an exciting new initiative for the Camden Campus. The CCIB was established to reflect the cross-departmental approach to biological research already established among Rutgers-Camden faculty. The Center brings together leading research academics from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics. Students in the Graduate Program in Computational & Integrative Biology are integrated into the life and activities of the Center and are viewed as an essential element of its success.
The work of the CCIB emphasizes the development of mathematical models for biological systems, application of the models to data from laboratory and field investigations, the adjustment of the model based on its fit to and predictive value for experimental results, and the subsequent modification of the experimental design based on the predictions of the model. We hope you will explore our site to learn more about the Center, its research, and its graduate program.
