The Department of Systems Biology was established as the Program in Systems Biology at UMass Medical School in 2011. The program was elevated to full department status in 2021. The goal of systems biology as a field is to understand biological processes at a systems level rather than at the level of individual molecules. Systems biology capitalizes on technological advances in the areas of genomics and high-throughput instrumentation, with strong links to computational biology, math, statistics and bioinformatics.
