The mission of NIMBioS is two-fold: (1) to foster the maturation of cross-disciplinary approaches at the interface of mathematics and biology, and (2) to foster the development of a cadre of researchers who are capable of conceiving and engaging in creative and collaborative connections across disciplines to effectively use appropriate and necessary mathematics to address fundamental and applied biological questions.
Collaboration: NIMBioS supports collaborative intensive research activities focusing on research questions that require a mixture of disciplinary backgrounds to address. The nature of the questions addressed at NIMBioS spans all of biology, impacting both basic and applied science.

Education activities at NIMBioS encompass the entire range from elementary education through postdoctoral mentoring. NIMBioS provides support and training for resident and visiting researchers, and offers varying levels of tutorial workshops designed to expand the mathematical and computational capabilities of biological science researchers as well as enhance the biological intuition of those with primarily mathematical or computational backgrounds. Outreach activities are intended in general to enhance the appreciation among disparate audiences that mathematics is intimately connected to many fascinating questions in modern biology.

Yes! Our name has recently changed to "National Institute for Modeling Biological Systems" as we enter a transitional state and to better reflect the work we do. Our logo has also been updated.
