Innovation at NIMBioS

Building upon our strengths in expanding opportunities for interdisciplinary science and education, NIMBioS has pioneered a number of new synergistic initiatives.

The National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research (NISER) is one of the main go-to groups in the United States providing evaluation planning and assistance to the science, technology, engineering and mathematics sectors, including academic communities, not-for-profit organizations, and government entities. Founded in 2016 as part of NIMBioS, NISER now operates out of UT's Office of Research & Engagement.

SAL enables cross-disciplinary research for those in academia, government and industry who are engaged in biogeographical modeling, spatial statistics, data acquisition and mapping.

The Center for the Dynamics of Social Complexity promotes connections and collaborations between researchers from diverse disciplines investigating various aspects and levels of human social behavior. DySoC uses theoretical and empirical methods at the interface of mathematical, data, biological, social, and computational sciences.

MMCC Logo. The Mathematical Modeling Consulting Center provides expertise on model development, simulation and analysis linking models to data. Although in its early stages, the MMCC is ready to help. Are you thinking of getting a project started that might benefit from modeling, but you're unsure how to start?
