Theory Plus Data, Across Disciplines: What’s New in the Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology
The first two years of existence for the Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology, based at Georgia Tech, have been busy. A unique arrangement of senior scientists paired with postdoctoral/graduate researchers is currently studying six projects that sit squarely at the intersection of both disciplines.
When the National Science Foundation and the Simons Foundation launched the Research Centers for Mathematics of Complex Biological Systems (MathBioSys) initiative two years ago, the idea was to bring two distinct disciplines together to enable creative, collaborative research, and ultimately to develop the next generation of researchers who would work seamlessly at interdisciplinary crossroads.
Margherita Maria Ferrari and Daniel Cruz are hosting a mini-symposium entitled "Algebra, Combinatorics, and Topology in Modern Biology" which will (virtually) run at the Society of Mathematical Biology 2021 Annual Meeting on June 17, 2021.
