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./
