Melanie Colón

Recommended Posts

Graduate students in math, biology and related fields are encouraged to
apply to the 2017 Graduate Summer Program on Connecting Biological Data
with Mathematical Models, to be held June 19-23, 2017, at the National
Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) at the
University of Tennessee–Knoxville.

Providing students with broad high-level training in mathematical
biology, the program includes lectures on techniques and modeling using
specific data sets, computer activities focusing on learning techniques,
and feedback sessions on participants’ research problems. Some
techniques to be covered include maximum likelihood and Bayesian
approaches to inference, parameter estimation, model identifiability,
uncertainty and sensitivity analysis

Researchers from the mathematical and biological sciences will be
featured speakers, including Ben Bolker (McMaster University); Ariel
Cintron-Arias (East Tennessee State University); Marisa Eisenberg
(School of Public Health, University of Michigan); Nina Fefferman
(University of Tennessee, Knoxville); Simeone Marino (University of
Michigan Medical School); and Joseph Tien (The Ohio State University).

*Co-sponsor**s: *NIMBioS, the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI,
Ohio State), and the Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and
Medicine (CAMBAM)

*Application Deadline:* Applications for acceptance to the school
received before February 3, 2017 will receive full consideration.

/The registration fee of $300, which includes on-campus housing and
meals, is due upon acceptance. Participants are responsible for their
own travel to Knoxville. A very limited amount of travel support is
available for those demonstrating need./
