The 2011 Summer Graduate Workshop will be held at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute from July 25 to August 5, 2011. Summer Workshop topics will include infectious disease, resource management, invasive species and evolution biology. Members of the organizing committee are: Fred Guichard (McGill University); Suzanne Lenhart (University of Tennessee at Knoxville); Yuan Lou (Ohio State University); and Libby Marschall (Ohio State University).
