Applications of Mathematics to Physiology and Medicine: An Undergraduate Workshop at Duke UniversityThe Department of Mathematics at Duke University will conduct an NSF-sponsored Summer Workshop on Applications of Mathematics to Physiology and Medicine, May 21 to May 28, 2014. The program is intended for undergraduates interested in learning how mathematics can be used to understand biological systems.
The workshop will consist of a series of lectures covering various topics in mathematical biology, such as physiology, cell biology, biofluid dynamics, gene networks, and neuroscience. Students will work closely with faculty mentors on small research projects related to topics of their own choosing. Students will present the results of their projects to the group.
The Department of Mathematics at Duke University will provide travel, housing, and meals, for the selected student participants. All travel arrangements must be made by the Department of Mathematics. Women and other members of underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
Workshop participants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and must currently be enrolled in a degree-granting undergraduate program. This program is not for Duke University undergraduates.
Interested students must complete the online application form, where they must upload a copy of their current undergraduate transcript and specify a Reference Writer for one letter of reference from a faculty member at their institution. The letter may be uploaded on the website or may be sent by email to Michael Reed, firstname.lastname@example.org. (MathPrograms will email the reference writer with instructions about how to upload their letter of recommendation.) Application materials must be received by March 31, 2014, in order to receive full consideration. However, we will have a rolling admissions process that will begin on February 1, 2014, so it is wise to apply early.
