Michelle Girvan Awarded $3M NSF Grant to Train Graduate Students in Network Biology

The University of Maryland recently received a five-year, $3 million National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) grant to establish a new training and research program in network biology. Graduate students in the Computation and Mathematics for Biological Networks (COMBINE) program will learn to marry physics-style quantitative modeling with data processing, analysis and visualization methods from computer science to gain deeper insights into the principles governing living systems. COMBINE’s principal investigator is associate professor Michelle Girvan (Physics/IPST).
