NSF-Simons Center at Harvard

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Simons Foundation have awarded a grant to Harvard scientists to create a research center aimed at bringing biologists and mathematicians together to answer some of the central questions about living systems.

Dubbed the NSF-Simons Center for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Biology at Harvard University, the center will be one of the cornerstones of the recently announced Quantitative Biology Initiative which is aimed at integrating mathematical, statistical, and engineering approaches with biology.
