Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Mathematical Biosciences Applications Due 1/31
The goal of this MBI NSF-funded program is to introduce students to exciting new areas of mathematical biology, to involve them in collaborative research with their peers and faculty mentors, and to increase their interest in mathematical biology.
The program consists of three parts - each including a mix of educational and social experiences:
- A high quality two-week program at MBI designed to introduce students to a variety of areas in mathematical biology.
- A personalized six-to-eight week research experience (at one of the seven partner universities, including IUPUI) that allows students to delve into depth in a particular topic
- A one-week conference at MBI featuring student reports on their projects.
Specific research projects offered at IUPUI are:
- Dynamical systems, Oscillations, Synchronization and Parkinson's Disease
Faculty Mentor: Leonid Rubchinsky
- Mathematical Modeling of Ocular Blood Flow and its Relation to Glaucoma
Faculty Mentors: Giovanna Guidoboni, Julia Arciero
- Fusing circadian and synthetic biology: dynamical identification of distinguishing elements in regulatory clocks
Faculty Mentors: Alexey Kuznetsov, Yaroslav Molkov
