Location: Virtual Participation with short presentations and active break-out sessions planned
Rationale and Goals: Have you ever been curious whether mathematical and statistical models might be useful in your research, but weren't sure how to begin? We invite graduate students, post-docs and faculty to join us for "A Tasting Menu of Models" at NIMBioS. Our program will included short presentations about what types of mathematical and statistical models there are and what they can do for you; question and answer sessions about how modeling might fit into your grant proposals, research, and teaching; and collaborative break-out sessions to talk about areas of research where modeling may help you tackle some new big challenges.
Models have been useful in diverse fields, ranging from education to political science to public health to psychology to chemistry to engineering and even into the arts. Quantitative models can increase impact and generality of empirical research results from specific systems, help generate novel hypotheses, and help reduce empirical burdens for testing complex interactions. While our examples and discussions will focus on tackling the interface of climate change and human health, researchers from any field in the life and mathematical sciences are invited to join us to learn how models could help them!
No matter what your field, join us discuss how quantitative models can help you and/or find new topics and collaborators for modeling!
Join us for the entire event or feel free to drop in as your schedule allows.
This program is cosponsored by the EDGE Foundation and supported by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
The event is free, but registration is required.
