Summer Research Awaits

Published: May 18, 2017

CHENEY, Washington -- Eastern Washington University biology student David Nguyen has been selected by the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) for its highly competitive Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (SRE) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK).

The 2017 NIMBioS SRE program runs for eight weeks, from June 5-July 28, and includes 16 undergraduates from universities across the United States and one high school teacher. Undergraduate participants receive free university apartment-style housing, a stipend of $4,000 and up to $650 of support for travel to and from Knoxville.

Participants work in teams with NIMBioS postdoctoral researchers and UTK faculty on research at the interface of mathematics and biology. Projects range from mathematical modeling of mating patterns in birds' evolution to modeling the effect of seasonality in host-pathogen disease dynamics.

More information about the SRE program and projects as well as a list of participants can be found at

NIMBioS is a National Science Foundation-sponsored initiative to foster interdisciplinary research at the interface between mathematical and biological sciences. Additional NIMBioS sponsors include the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
