Workshop | For Mathematicians: Collaborating with Life Scientists
Time & Location
Nov 19, 2020, 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM CST
About the Event
Scientific breakthroughs are driven by paradigm shifts that are often triggered by a new perspective or approach. Collaborations across disciplines such as applying mathematical thinking and analysis to life sciences often bring these new outlooks. In this panel discussion, NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology faculty from pure and applied math, physics, and statistics will share their experiences collaborating with faculty from the life sciences. During the session, they will discuss successful approaches and strategies for collaboration, ways to communicate efficiently and effectively across disciplines, and will provide advice for PhD and early career scientists who are seeking to form collaborations between mathematics and the life sciences.
