NIGMS Seeks Applications for Short Courses on Mathematical, Statistical, and Computational Tools In Biological and Behavioral Research
October 18, 2011
by Paula Skedsvold
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences is encouraging applications for Research Education Grants (R25) to conduct workshops and short courses that aim to improve the integration of mathematical, statistical, and computational approaches in biological and/or behavioral research. The short courses may target undergraduate through professional audiences, but are not intended for the development of university courses or curricula. An evaluation plan is required to determine the effectiveness of the education program. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Management and analysis of biological or behavioral data
- Visualization of data and modeling results
- Computational analysis and modeling of biological and behavioral processes within the NIGMS mission (e.g., physiology, social dynamics)
Web-based instruction or more traditional approaches are welcome. The first deadline for proposals is Jan. 25, 2012, and a letter of intent is due 30 days prior to the application due date.
