Grad school strong in physics, neuroscience and compsci?

Postby memoria » Tue Aug 19, 2014 6:39 pm

My bachelor's is in physics, but I studied neuroscience and computer science as well, and I want to do cross-disciplinary research that connects all 3 fields. Does anyone know schools that have good departments in all categories?

That's a tall order but you want to do computational biophysics research...

Well, I've considered that, but I'm not hugely interested in modelling protein folding (that's what I usually see comp biophys as...is that right?). Do you know any good schools for computational biophysics?

Have you thought about med phys? You'd be well suited for diagnostic imaging, which would fit all 3.

You should look into Emory.

I don't know what types of schools you are thinking of, but MIT and Stanford are the ones that come to mind.
