Research Programs

SAMSI’s research programs are large-scale efforts focusing on interfaces among statistics, applied mathematics and other disciplinary sciences. The programs typically run a full academic year. They involve long and short term research fellows from U.S. and international institutions, and SAMSI postdoctoral fellows. Graduate students from our partner universities and from other universities, both national and international, are active participants. The programs also engage researchers working in industry, governmental agencies and national laboratories.

Current Research Programs

September 8, 2014 - May 22, 2015

The Bioinformatics program will be devoted to statistical and mathematical challenges arising in the analysis of genomic and related data with the goal of addressing relevant biological questions.

August 18, 2014 - May 22, 2015

This program will bring together three groups of researchers – statisticians, mathematicians and theoretical ecologists – to study and develop the interactions among the different approaches to ecological modeling.
