The University of California, Irvine is proud to organize two summer research programs in mathematical biology in 2021, MathBioU for undergraduates and Math ExpLR for High School students. Students will work for 6 weeks from 06/21/2021 to 07/30/2021 in small research teams and give a presentation at the end of the program. In addition, students will attend skill-building workshops that will prepare them to carry out mathematical research, including Matlab programming, mathematical modeling, giving research presentations and writing a research paper.
Given the current pandemic environment, this year’s programs will take place entirely online through Zoom. They will follow the footsteps of our successful programs carried out in summer of 2020, which were also online and led to many productive projects and fulfilling mentoring activities. As a consequence of this virtual format, students across the US are welcome to apply.
Most teams for the programs will consist of both undergraduates and High School students working together on a research project. The 2021 project descriptions are still being finalized and will be posted as soon as they are available.
