Systems and Integrative Biology (SIB) training grant
The NIH-sponsored Systems and Integrative Biology training grant supports pre-doctoral students who seek a balanced and rigorous training in mathematics and biology/biomedicine with a special emphasis on research in mathematical modeling in biology or biomedicine. Trainees will complete a minimum of 20 quarter units of advanced courses in quantitative methods, 20 quarter units in biological sciences, one course on ethics in biological/medical research, and at least one quarter per year of directed research in the laboratory of a participating faculty member. For more information, please contact the director, Tom Chou, or the student affairs officer, Emily Fitch.
ModEling and uNdersTanding human behaviOR (MENTOR) NRT
The NSF-funded MENTOR program offers unique opportunities to train future scientists to develop and deploy new mathematical models, analytical methods, and application tools that directly address the challenges in managing, analyzing and integrating new and diverse types of data and knowledge across scientific and engineering disciplines. It draws upon a core group of interdisciplinary faculty researchers and teachers across UCLA. For more information, contact Andrea Bertozzi (PI) or Wei Wang (co-investigator).
