First Young Researchers Workshop in Mathematical Biology

(March 29,2005 - April 1,2005 )

The Mathematical Biosciences Institute will held the First Young Researchers Workshop in Mathematical Biology, March 29 - April 1, 2005, organized by the MBI Postdoctoral Fellows.

The principal aim of the workshop was to bring together approximately 40 young researchers in Mathematical Biology, to broaden their scientific perspective, and to develop connections that will be important for their future careers.

The workshop included several plenary talks by leading researchers in Mathematical Biosciences. The plenary speakers were: Charles Peskin, James Keener, Tamar Schlick, Claudia Neuhauser, Alex Mogilner, and Louis Gross. There was also a panel discussion led by Kirk Jordan (IBM) and Frank Tobin (GlaxoSmithKline) on "How to develop a career in mathematical biology in industry."

The workshop included poster presentations and short talks by the young researchers, and working group discussions on broad scientific issues that bridge the gap between data, modeling, and applications.
