Modelling and Microbiology Summer School

Modelling and Microbiology Summer School
University of Nottingham, 20-23 August

The aims of our summer school are:
•       To bring together microbiologists and theoreticians in a practical-led training workshop at the interface of modelling and microbiology
•       To provide modellers with the opportunity to carry out laboratory experimental work
•       To provide experimentalists with the opportunity to carry out mathematical modelling
•       To show how working together with the two approaches on the same data can enhance our understanding of the natural world
•       To provide research seminars at the interface of modelling and microbiology to showcase state-of-the-art systems biology research

For the two practical days, delegates with experimental and theoretical backgrounds will be paired, working together first in the laboratory, and then in the computer room. This exciting format enables people with different disciplines to learn from each other.

Open to all – MSc and PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, PIs, pharma and biotech R&D.

We welcome applications from all sub-disciplines – you don’t have to be a microbiologist to attend!

Places are limited to 28. We will ask whether your background is mainly experimental or theoretical and a brief statement of what you hope to get out of the workshop. Thanks to support from BBSRC under the StoMP and Bioluminescence grants the course fee is only £80 and this covers tuition, single en-suite accommodation for 3 nights, and all meals and refreshments.

Confirmed seminar speakers

Paul Williams (Nottingham)
Gail Preston (Oxford)
John Ward (Loughborough)

Course Organisers: Dov Stekel (University of Nottingham) and Jamie Wood (University of York).

    • Thanks for your interest in the course. There is no deadline: we will be taking applications until all 28 places are filled. If you fill in the on-line form you should be OK. Once all places are filled I will update the blog so that it is clear. I hope that helps – and looking forward to seeing you in August.
