2014 MBI-CAMBAM-NIMBioS Summer Graduate Program: Rhythms & Oscillations

(July 7,2014 - July 18,2014 )

Organizers


Daniel Forger
Mathematics, University of Michigan
Paul Francois
Department of Physics, McGill University

This summer school will focus on the theory, mathematical modeling and experimental study of biological rhythms. The workshop will begin with a bootcamp introducing the basic mathematical tools and techniques used in studying biological rhythms. In depth explorations of specific problems will then be presented. Students will also work in small groups on projects, which will be presented at the end of the two week workshop.

All applicants selected for the MBI Summer Graduate Program will receive lodging (single dorm room) and a campus meal card loaded with daily breakfast, lunch and dinner through their entire stay.  Also, selected applicants will receive partial reimbursement for travel expenses. There is no tuition charged to summer school participants.

Apply by March 3rd, 2014 for full consideration.
