Intercollegiate Biomathematics Alliance (IBA) is hosting an undergraduate research workshop in June 2016.
The workshop, named “Pre-Conference Workshop for Future Researchers” is organized by Professor of Biomathematics Olcay Akman. It is designed to gather the faculty and the undergraduate students of the IBA member institutions to initiate cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional research projects.
During the workshop, faculty mentors will present their research agenda, either in person, or online using the math department’s new state of the art digital classroom. Faculty presentations will be followed by break-out sessions where IBA faculty and students will start working on individual projects.
IBA will continue to facilitate their cross-institutional research after the participants return home. Then again in October, the students will be invited to the 2016 International Symposium on Biomathematics and Ecology Education and Research (BEER) to present their findings or progress reports. The workshop, the first of its kind in the nation, will be completely funded by the IBA.
