The Ph.D. Program in Integrative and Systems Biology at the University of Colorado Denver is a multidisciplinary, dual campus program that offers students opportunities to address complex questions in biology using computational, laboratory, and field approaches. The more than 40 program faculty members allow students to participate on a diversity of projects at all levels of biological organization, ranging from ecology and environmental microbiology to biochemistry, developmental biology, and neuroscience. Depending on the track an incoming student chooses, the approach will either be to explore the problem at multiple levels of biological organization (Integrative Biology) or to explore the multi-component nature of a biological system (Systems Biology).
The two campuses of the University of Colorado Denver are located in metropolitan Denver. The Denver campus is located in the heart of downtown Denver while the Anschutz Medical Campus is located in nearby Aurora. Located near several other major colleges and universities, the Denver Federal Center, and over hundreds of bioscience companies, CU Denver is among the premier institutions in Colorado. Additionally, the Denver area offers a remarkable diversity of recreational activities, including outdoor, cultural and sporting opportunities. The climate boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year with mild winters.
