Major grant to Trinity for Integrated Research in Biomathematics

Saber Elaydi and colleagues from the departments of Mathematics, Biology and Engineering Sciences have been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation for the Interdisciplinary Training for Undergraduates in Biological and Mathematical Sciences (UBM).  This initiative is expected to build on the relationships between the mathematics and biology departments by forming research partnerships involving faculty and students, as well as deepening curricular collaborations.  Participating mathematics, engineering science, and biology faculty (12 in total) will work in teams with students (10 to 14 per year) from both disciplines and conduct research during the summer.  In addition, the departments of Biology and Mathematics will offer new interdisciplinary courses, culminating in the creation of a new minor in biomathematics. $900,000
