Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics Majors

In recent years a great deal of emphasis has been placed on the quantitative and physical sciences as a way to integrate the biological sciences into a continuum from structural and molecular studies to bioinformatics, population studies and comprehensive data analysis. This approach promises to reveal new paradigms and encourages a deep analysis of underlying principles and relationships.

Emory is unique in having strengths in all these areas.

  • Chemistry, Physics, and Math and Computer Sciences have partnered with the Biological and Biomedical Sciences in Emory’s Computational and Life Sciences Strategic Initiative.
  • The Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences is a nationally ranked interdisciplinary training program in the Biological Sciences and offers outstanding training in eight interdisciplinary programs in the Life Sciences.
  • The joint Emory and Georgia Tech Department of Biomedical Engineering is ranked second in the nation and combines the resources of a top Medical School with the computational, engineering and bioinformatics expertise of one of the top engineering schools in the world.
  • The Rollins School of Public Health and the adjacent U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer unparalleled opportunities in the departments of Epidemiology, Global Health, and Bioinformatics.

Training opportunities include:

  • Population and Laboratory Based Sciences - A unique new graduate training opportunity in Human Health: Molecules to Man combines rigorous training in population based and laboratory sciences.
  • Computational and Life Sciences (CLS) - Emory has launched a CLS Strategic Initiative with pillars consisting of Computational Science and Informatics, Synthetic Sciences and Systems Biology.
