Location: NIMBioS, Claxton Bldg., on the campus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Schedule of Activities (PDF)


This graduate program had instructors from across North America whose research expertise is mathematical modeling in biological systems using real data. Some of the techniques covered included:

  • Maximum likelihood and Bayesian approaches to inference
  • Parameter estimation
  • Model identifiability
  • Uncertainty and sensitivity analysis

The program included lectures on techniques and modeling using specific data sets. Computer activities focused on learning techniques and sessions to receive feedback on participants’ own research problems. Researchers from the mathematical and biological sciences were featured speakers.
