NIMBioS Working Groups were chosen to focus on major well-defined scientific questions at the interface between biology and mathematics that require insights from diverse researchers, meeting up to three times over a two-year period. Working Groups were relatively small with no more than 15 participants, focused on a well-defined topic and had well-defined goals and metrics of success. Participation was by invitation only. NIMBioS Working Groups have produced more than 300 journal papers, 127 presentations or posters, 16 book chapters, and 21 grant proposals.
"I think the recent NIMBioS Working Group was the most productive, useful and collaborative experience in my career to date. I am simply thrilled to be a part of it."
"The NIMBioS network that brought our team of mathematicians, economists, ecologists and epidemiologists together has gone on to win grants from the NIH, the NSF and the UK's BBSRC."
"NIMBioS has united the forces of mathematical and computational biology communities and forever changed the landscape of mathematical biology research and education in the US and the world."
