CSC's Division of Physical and Biological Sciences (PBSci) and the Jack Baskin School of Engineering (SOE) support a broad range of biomedical research. This research is conducted by more than seventy faculty-led teams—principally within the Departments of Biomolecular Engineering (BME), Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology (MCD), Chemistry and Biochemistry (Chem), and Microbiology and Environmental Toxicology (METX). Additional investigators are based in the Departments of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and the Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics (SCIPP).

UCSC biomedical researchers are housed in state-of-the-art laboratories, with access to shared facilities, equipment, and computational tools. The unusually collaborative environment has helped create an outstanding track record of remarkable interdisciplinary research and training. Indeed, interdisciplinary research is institutionalized at UCSC in organizations such as the Center for Molecular Biology of RNA, the Center for Biomolecular Science and Engineering (CBSE), and the California Institute for Quantitative Biology (QB3).

Both the Division of Physical and Biological Sciences and Jack Baskin School of Engineering also provide excellent research training programs for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. In the biomedical sciences, the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (PBSE) crosses departmental boundaries and provides students with diverse research opportunities. This program is supported by National Institutes of Health and California Institute for Regenerative Medicine training grants, and is associated with one of the nation's most successful NIH Initiatives for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD).
