Nonlinear Dynamics in Life Sciences
Date: July 15-19, 2019
The Fields Institute (http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/), in collaboration with the Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine (CAMBAM) at McGill University (https://www.mcgill.ca/cambam/), will be hosting a joint summer school entitled "Nonlinear Dynamics in Life Sciences" between July 15-19, 2019. The summer school is funded by the Fields Institute and CAMBAM.

The summer school aims to provide (under)graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with basic training in mathematical and computational biology, covering diverse topics in cardiac systems, neuroscience, immunology, molecular biology and ecology. For one week, participants will have the opportunity to benefit from the instruction of international experts in the field of mathematical modeling and nonlinear dynamics. It will prepare them to the increasing demand in academia, government, and industry for people with cross-disciplinary training who, with various degrees of competence, can speak the languages of the mathematical, physical and biological sciences. During the summer school, participants will apply their knowledge and skills through various lab activities and close interactions with instructors and other attendees.

The summer school is free. Financial support (up to $800) will be provided to participants that are accepted into the program to cover meals, lodging and airfare.
