HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Al‐Saud Institute for Computational Biomedicine

The Institute for Computational Biomedicine (ICB) uses applied mathematics and computer-based technologies to enhance the study of medicine and tackle the most challenging questions in systems biology. Faculty members collaborate with clinicians from the Caryl and Israel Englander Institute for Precision Medicine and other departments, and they conduct research in computational neuroscience, computational cancer genomics and statistical genetics, among other topics. The institute trains the next generation of computational biologists, as well as scientists with a strong background in computer science and mathematics.  ICB faculty teach in graduate programs including the Tri-Institutional Training Program in Computational Biology and Medicine, the neuroscience Ph.D. program and the Tri-Institutional Ph.D. Program in Chemical Biology.
