NIMBioS Investigative Workshops

NIMBioS is no longer accepting requests for new Investigative Workshops, Accelerator Tutorials or Innovator Workshops.

Investigative Workshops focused on broad topics or a set of related topics, summarizing/synthesizing the state of the art and identifying future directions. Requests for NIMBioS support for investigative workshops were considered twice per year; however, new requests are currently not being accepted. All areas of research at the interface of biology and mathematics were considered, but we were especially interested in activities expanding beyond the areas of research supported to date. Potential organizers of activities in areas of molecular biology, cell biology, network biology, immunology and systems biology were particularly encouraged to submit requests for support of Working Groups or Investigative Workshops.

Investigative Workshops had up to 35 participants. Organizers and key invited researchers made up half the participants; the remaining participants (up to 17) were filled through open application from the scientific community. Open applicants selected to attend were notified by NIMBioS within two weeks of the application deadline. Investigative Workshops had the potential for leading to one or more future Working Groups. Individuals with a strong interest in the topic, including post-docs and graduate students, were encouraged to apply. If needed, NIMBioS provided support (travel, meals, lodging) for Workshop attendees, whether from a non-profit or for-profit organization.
