Support to the Broad Research Community
The role of an institute is to create more than the sum of our parts. Part of our ongoing mission is to serve as a communal center for academic thought in mathematical biology and life science modeling. At NIMBioS, we help run a large diversity of program types, organized by researchers from around the globe and funded by an equally diverse array of agencies and foundations. We provide administrative support and expert advice for how to plan and execute each of these types of activities. We make the planning part easy for organizers and we make the experience enjoyable for participants. We also create community and enhance our local, regional, national, and international research environment by bringing people together.
Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers interact across our Institute to broaden their exposure to different disciplines, gain experience in inter-, multi-, and transdisciplinary research communication, and experience different approaches to quantitative life sciences research. Junior faculty find community and career mentoring. Senior faculty and researchers from outside academia find an exciting and collaborative playground for the interchange of ideas and opportunities.
At NIMBioS, we take our role as a center of our intellectual and emotional community as our most ambitious and important goal.
