This is a gateway course for the Biomathematical Sciences Concentration. Four three-week modules will present active biomath research projects. The research will be presented by pairs of faculty (one from the life sciences and one from the mathematical and statistical sciences). Students will work in groups on activities including data collection, modeling and manipulations using mathematical, statistical and computational tools that they will learn in the course. Expected work includes reading papers and developing proposals for new research questions. Open to all students. Graded S/U only
