Working Groups focus on major well-defined scientific questions at the interface between biology and mathematics that require insights from diverse researchers, meeting up to 3 times over a 2-year period. Participation is by invitation only.


Investigative Workshops focus on broad topics or a set of related topics, summarizing/synthesizing the state of the art and identifying future directions. Workshops have up to 35 participants. Organizers and key invited researchers make up half the participants; the remaining participants are filled through open application from the scientific community. Also check out our new Innovator Workshops, which offer a more streamlined review process.


Tutorials. NIMBioS has hosted a number of tutorials related to the interface of biological/computational/mathematical research. Organizers, presenters and key invited researchers make up a portion of the 25-30 participants; the remaining participants are filled through open application from the scientific community. Also check out our new Accelerator Tutorials.


Other Meetings of Interest. NIMBioS partners with other groups on a variety of conferences, workshops and other events. For many of these events, NIMBioS has been successful in securing support from foundations, government, and industry.
