Case studies (Life Science Mathematics) in summer semester 2017

Registration required soon, see below

In this course, the participants, organised in small groups of 2-4 persons, model – largely independent – a biological system by methods taught in Biomathematics and Biostatistics classes. This includes literature research, formulation of the model, analysis and simulations of the model as well as the interpretation of the results and a final presentation of the project. The students are supervised intensely in the small groups and receive individual mentoring and support.

Within the scope of the case studies, introductions in soft skills like presentation techniques, literature research, and methods to set-up of realistic work schedule will be offered as preparation. Organisation and project work skills in a team will be acquired and tested on the basis of the own project.

A special focus is set on the connection of Mathematics with a concrete application from life sciences. Thereby, apart from the internal exchange concerning the progresses and results, also the project presentation for people from other disciplines or different educational background is trained.

The offered projects mainly are current interdisciplinary project, run in cooperation with groups from different faculties at TUM or other research institutions.

The course is offered for Master students of the Faculty of Mathematics, especially those enrolled in the study course “Mathematics in Biosciences”.

Weekly hours: 4
ECTS credits: 7

Further information: An informal meeting has taken place on Wednesday, February, 8th , 2017 at 12.00 a.m. in room 00.08.038.
