Our second Faculty Institute will introduce strategies for implementing more quantitative reasoning in the interdisciplinary modules.  This year’s topics include HIV and cancer.  On Monday, we will introduce Excel,  explore data visualization,  and model tumor growth kinetics.  On Tuesday, we will introduce HIV and explore data (Markham 1998) .

The workshop schedule includes  an optional consulting session on August 12, 2009.  Individuals or groups can set up a meeting between 8 AM and 12 PM.

Dr. Claudia Neuhauser and Dr. Tony Weisstein will be joining us for the first time. We will be using online resources from Gapminder, CDC, WHO, Wolfram Alpha, NCBI, Biology Workbench,  and GenBank.  These links and other resources can be found on the 2009 Resources page.

We are looking forward to working with each of you as the project begins its second year. Please review the new 2009 Schedule for Monday, August 10th and Tuesday, August 11th.  Group work on existing and new modules begins Tuesday afternoon.
