UH has received a National Science Foundation grant which will pay for math and biology majors to participate in interdisciplinary research and training at UH. Interested students are encouraged to inquire before registering for classes for next semester.
In particular, students with at least one year of calculus are encouraged to enroll in Math 305, which is concerned with probabilistic models in biology.
Please contact Prof. Les Wilson for further information or go to the UH Math Biology website.
