Daniel Linder, Augusta U: “Parameter inference in stochastic dynamical systems from biology" Daniel Linder is an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics in the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University. His interests lie broadly in mathematics and statistics, with main research focuses on stochastic dynamical modeling of gene regulatory networks and disease epidemics as well as high-dimensional Bayesian variable selection and machine learning. An important aspect of some of his recent work is developing Bayesian strategies for inference of reaction network topology; i.e., learning biological network structures from experimental data.

We want to warmly invite you to the upcoming Georgia Regional Conference that is scheduled to be held on March 24, 2017-March 26, 2017 on the UGA campus. The American Mock World Health Organization (AMWHO) is the national structure for creating a simulation of the World Health Assembly and invites high school, undergraduate and graduate students to debate and discuss a predetermined theme. Please feel free to attain additional information regarding the conference and apply directly via the following link: http://amwho.org/georgia.php#registration. The Georgia Regional Conference (GRC) will likewise simulate the World Health Assembly by means of focusing on the conference theme of Food Insecurity. While, food insecurity is a global issue, it also deeply affects Athens-Clarke County and thus has been the topic of much research and social work on the University of Georgia campus.The GRC will enable students to create similar resolutions from the Assembly, engage with speakers and peers throughout the conference, and obtain sound knowledge and skills of diplomacy, policy creation, and debate.
