NIMBioS Investigative Workshops focus on a broad topic or set of related topics at the interface of biology and mathematics and have a relatively large size of up to 35 participants. Workshops attempt to summarize and synthesize the state of the art and identify future directions, and they have potential for leading to future Working Groups. NIMBioS Investigative Workshops have produced 130 journal papers, 86 presentations or posters, 2 book chapters, and 12 grant proposals.

What Participants Say:

"The mix of people with very different approaches to the topic of the workshop was excellent. The talks identified many questions that will be important to take into consideration in my own future studies, so I think the workshop will have a lasting positive impact on my research."

"Since I work in multiple fields, I don't always get the chance to meet a huge number of people from any particular discipline. This was an excellent opportunity to remedy this. If working groups coalesce from the discussions that took place at the workshop, this will perhaps be the most promising development for the field."

"I have nothing but praise for my experience as an organizer with NIMBioS. I hope to participate in future workshops and working groups and the resulting collaborations will keep me busy in the future for quite a while. Great job!"
