College Students and Faculty

REU program
NIMBioS sponsors Research Experiences for Undergraduates each summer. Undergraduate majors in math, biology, and related fields live on the University of Tennessee campus for 8 weeks and work in teams with UTK professors on research projects at the interface of mathematics and biology. In some years, veterinary students (DVM or VMD) also participate as part of the Research Experiences for Veterinary Students program.

Undergraduate Research Conference
NIMBioS organizes and hosts an annual Undergraduate Research Conference at the Interface of Biology and Mathematics each Fall. Faculty and Minority Serving Institution partners and high school teachers are invited to see the research of these undergraduates. Click here for information about past conferences.

Joint MBI-NIMBioS-CAMBAM Summer Graduate Program
Each summer, NIMBioS helps to present this 10-day program at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI). Instructors are researchers in mathematics and the biological sciences from across North America. Graduate students from the mathematical, physical and life sciences are all encouraged to apply. The 2013 program will be hosted at NIMBioS.

Mathematical Sciences Collaborative Diversity Initiative Workshops
Mathematical sciences institutes in North America, including the NSF Mathematical Sciences Institutes, have formed a committee with the goal of joining together in their efforts to support the participation of underrepresented groups in the mathematical sciences, including women, underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities. Different programs target undergraduates, graduate students, recent PhD's, faculty and professionals. The "Modern Math Workshop" at SACNAS (, with NIMBioS as the lead organizer in 2012, is one of these activities. See the full schedule here.

NIMBioS Tutorials
NIMBioS hosts a number of tutorials related to the interface of biological/computational/mathematical research.
