Louis Gross, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, and mathematics, has been invited to join a National Academies of Sciences committee to set a vision for the emerging discipline of data science in undergraduate education in the United States.
Part of a national effort to advance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics undergraduate education is being directed by a UT professor. Three five-day National Science Foundation Ideas Labs —one for biology, one for engineering, and one for geosciences—are being held this month through April 4 in the Washington, D.C., area. Louis Gross, director of the
Tennessee high school students Dalton Chaffee and Hayes Griffin have now done what many scientists strive for: publishing their research in a top science journal. Chaffee and Griffin worked with mentor R. Tucker Gilman, a former postdoctoral research fellow at UT’s National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) to study mate choice. Their work
A National Science Foundation grant renewal for a high profile national research center at UT, National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis or NIMBioS, has been featured in hundreds of news outlets including Reuters, the AP, and Knoxville News Sentinel. The institute uses mathematics to study biological issues has received a second $18.6 million renewal
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $18.6 million to UT for the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) to continue its interdisciplinary efforts in developing new mathematical approaches to problems across biology, from the level of the genome to individuals to entire ecosystems.
The Office of Research is sponsoring a two-part workshop on how to seek funding from the Army Research Office. ARO serves as the Army’s premier extramural basic research agency and sponsors research primarily at academic institutions in following areas: electrical, environmental, materials, and mechanical engineering; computer and network sciences and mathematics; chemistry, physics, life sciences,
The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) at UT Knoxville celebrates its one-year anniversary this month, and thus far, more than 400 individuals from 15 countries and 43 states have participated in various research and educational activities. NIMBioS focuses on advancing research and education at the interface of biology and mathematics. Programs for
