Quantitative bioscience is the application of mathematics, physics and numerical computations to all spheres of biology. It provides a common currency to the understanding of life at the microscopic and macroscopic level, from single molecules to complex ecosystems. It underlies the development of personalized biomedical devices, optimized drug delivery to patients and the prediction of ecosystem health in changing environments. While these challenges are typically addressed within each research area, the required quantitative (mathematical, physical and computational) tools are shared across all areas. The rich stream of experimental data has made it possible for bioscientists to build testable and predictive models that are based on sound data. It is these models, accompanied by statistical and computational approaches, that have provided a patform for experimentalists to undertand the dynamics of their respective biological systems and to guide new experiments. As a result, the field of mathematical and computational modeling has been felt strongly across the biological sciences, including neuroscience, cancer biology, immunology, epidemiology, ecology, and evolutionary biology.

In this summer school, we aim to provide a new generation of trainees with the opportunity to learn more about the basics of this field and give them an overview of the latest advancements made in quantitative biosciences.
