Our mission is to foster the growth of transdisciplinary approaches within mathematics and biology
We are based at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, but our mission is to support research and researchers across the globe. Building on our history starting out an NSF Synthesis Center we are now operating as an independent Institute. We work to foster the collaborative and intellectual space that allows researchers, educators, students, and policy makers to come together and succeed at creative, ambitious, transdisciplinary efforts that each of us would struggle to accomplish on our own. We help researchers in mathematical biology to bring their spark of insight to fruition as a grant proposal, educational program, or new collaboration.
Here are some of the services we already offer, but we're constantly expanding. Keep checking back here often...
NIMBioS is buzzing with activity and excitement as we shift into this next phase of our existence and we want to hear from you!

Initially established in 2008 with an award from the National Science Foundation, the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis continues to bring together researchers from around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to find creative solutions to today's complex biological problems. The NIMBioS process and its results have united the forces of diverse academic communities, transforming the landscape of scientific research and education.

This truly was one of the best interdisciplinary workshops on sustainability that I have been to.
