Florida Tech recently received nearly $320,000 from the National Science Foundation to fund a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) BioMath program which integrates the expertise of faculty from biological sciences and mathematical sciences departments to train 10 undergrad students on research problems at the intersection of biology and mathematics. Lead by Principal Investigator David Carroll, associate professor of biological sciences, and co-Principal Investigator Munevver Mine Subasi, assistant professor of mathematical sciences, the program will run for 10 weeks each summer from 2015 through 2017.
It will feature a host of participating Florida Tech faculty. From Biological Sciences: Lisa Moore, Andrew Palmer, Christin Pruett and Rob van Woesik. From Mathematical Sciences: Jian Du, Jewgeni Dshalalow and Nezamoddin Nezamoddini-Kachouie.
