Weitz Group @ Georgia Tech Theoretical Ecology and Quantitative Biology

Announcing Viral Workshop @ Georgia Tech

Posted by admin

Applications from junior researchers are being considered for participation in a two-and-a-half day workshop whose objective is to change the landscape of how we model and understand viruses. A small group of scientists will discuss new theoretical and computational tools to bridge multiple spatiotemporal scales in the study of viral dynamics from phage to human pathogens. Topics will be organized around the following broad themes:

  • Within and between cell dynamics
  • Within and between host dynamics
  • From infection to evolution
  • More information on the workshop, Viral Paradigms: Molecules, Populations, Ecosystems,and Infectious Disease is available here.

    This workshop is made possible via the support of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, Georgia Tech's College of Sciences and the Program in Applied, Biological, and Contemporary Mathematics at Tech. Dr. Weitz is organizing the workshop along with Dr. Howie Weiss (Georgia Tech)and Dr. Rustom Antia (Emory).
