NIMBioS is based at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Our mission is to support research efforts and researchers across the globe within the fields of mathematics, biology, ecology, public health, the life sciences and more. Building on our history starting out as an NSF Synthesis Center we are now operating as an independent institute.
We work to foster the collaborative and intellectual space that allows researchers, educators, students, and policy makers to come together and succeed at creative, ambitious, transdisciplinary efforts that each of us would struggle to accomplish on our own. We help researchers in mathematical biology to bring their spark of insight to fruition as a grant proposal, educational program, or new collaboration.
We can help you find a partner in a new area of biology that could benefit from your math, share and promote your work within the broader mathematical biology community, help you find mathematical biology initiatives to lead, by providing intellectual partners and administrative support. If there are other ways we can help, let us know.
