The biological and mathematical sciences are mixing...

Are you a biology major who's always liked math? A math or statistics major who wants to apply what you've learned in class to real-world problems in biology? We'd like you two to meet! Research at the interface of the biological and mathematical sciences is a rapidly growing area of inquiry, and now undergraduates can join in. In Case's RIBMS program, funded by NSF's "Interdisciplinary Training for Undergraduates in Biological and Mathematical Sciences (UBM)" program, biology majors will form teams with math or statistics majors to work on research projects at the interface of the biological and mathematical sciences, under the mentorship of faculty from both areas. Students will conduct research full-time one summer and will continue the work the following year.
