Center for Computational Biology (CCB)

Berkeley, California - United States

Advancing understanding of the deep interface between the computational and biological sciences through interdisciplinary research and education. The Center for Computational Biology (CCB) was established in 2003 through the Chancellor's New Ideas Initiative, an outgrowth of the 2002 Strategic Academic Plan, to expand the research base at the University and produce the next generation of leaders in the fundamental and applied biological sciences.

Administratively housed in the Berkeley component of the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3), the mission of CCB is to support interdisciplinary research on the broad array of subjects that cover the interface between computation and biology, and to foster graduate and undergraduate education in the field.

The Center includes distinguished faculty and graduate students from several academic departments and all disciplines underlying computational biology, specially recruited Innovation Fellows, collaborators from other institutions, and leaders from industry, government and nonprofit organizations.

Our goal is simple: To establish UC Berkeley as the premier institution for education, training and reseach in computational biology. Our specific aims include:

* Hire new faculty leaders to catalyze interdisciplinary interactions;
* Create a training program in computational biology that will be a model for universities worldwide;
* Catalyze large-scale projects that cut across departmental boundaries;
* Develop joint programs with industry and raise and administer industrial funding;
* Develop outreach programs to attract women and underrepresented minorities to computational biology;
* Ensure Berkeley faculty have the resources they need to successfully lead interdisciplinary teams.
