Summer School in Mathematical Biology

Location

Kathmandu, Nepal

Dates

17/06/2019 to 26/06/2019

Presentation

The primary objective of this summer school is to provide an opportunity for mathematicians and biologists in Nepal and neighboring countries to explore mathematical skills that can be applied to address issues of real-life biological systems. The summer school aims to introduce students, junior faculty members, and young researchers to the important theories and appli- cations of Mathematical Biology.

The program of the school includes six major topics of mathematical biology : Discrete and Continuous Population Dynamics (N. Vaidya), Biological Data and Model Parameters (G. Jeremie), Mathematical Epidemiology (R. Smith?), Within-host Modeling (L. Rong), Evolu- tion and Genetics (L. Wahl), and Ion Transport in Biological Tissues (H. Huang). Participants will also get opportunities to work in group projects aiming to address real-life biological questions.
