Pre-doctoral summer school in Quantitative Biology, July 8-19, 2019

In recent years, the concepts and tools of mathematics, physics, statistics and engineering have had a fundamental impact in biological research. Bioinformatics and in general the analysis of genomics data are largely based on statistics. Physical forces have finally been recognized as critical for shaping the behavior of cells. The ability of cells to read the environment and react accordingly via the expression of different classes of genes has been rationalized with the use of elegant mathematical models.

This pre-doctoral school will be an opportunity to experience research in an interdisciplinary environment.

We propose to students near the end of their undergraduate studies to familiarize with some of the concepts of quantitative sciences widely used in biological research.

The school is designed especially for students who are considering pursuing a PhD in research areas at the interface between biology and quantitative sciences. Students interested in exploring such opportunities in PhD programs at IFOM are especially encouraged to apply.

Up to twenty students will be selected. Attendance and lodging will be fully covered.
