New Directions Short Course
This is the first IMA New Directions Short Course, an initiative
designed for mid-career scientists who wish to broaden their work to
include a new interdisciplinary research interest, the particular
topic of the course changing from year to year.
In 2003, we feature a two-week intensive course in Cellular
Physiology, running 16-27 June, and taught by
- James Keener, Professor
of Mathematics and Adjunct Professor of Bioengineering at University
of Utah and author of the award-winning text Mathematical Physiology;
Alexander Mogilner, Professor and Chancellor's Fellow at the
Department of Mathematics and Center for Genetics and Development at
University of California at Davis.
There were 40 applicants.
The National Science Foundation
provided funds to accept 25,
and all of the IMA's offers were accepted.
Partipants will be given room and board at Comstock Hall, one of the
University of Minnesota's dormitories. Each participant also will
be given shared office space and computer facilities at the IMA.
