Systems biology focuses on understanding the structure and function of biological systems on multiple levels — from molecules to organisms — through data garnered from theoretical, experimental, and computational methodologies.

The mission of the School of Systems Biology at George Mason University is to provide a research and educational environment that allows integration of the various areas of molecular and cellular biosciences from a systems perspective.

The School of Systems Biology offers research-based degree programs whose graduates go on to pursue careers in government agencies and private industry, higher education, and health care industries.
