First Annual Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology
Summer Boot Camp

Mechanisms of Anti-Microbial Resistance

Our Boot Camp is designed to augment education for quantitative and biological scientists. Our overarching goal is to introduce students of all ages to the value of integrating biology and medicine with mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, statistics and biostatistics, and engineering.

The immersive one-week Boot Camp experience will provide broad introductory exposure to the language, culture, and experimental/theoretical underpinnings of molecular biology, macromolecular biochemistry/biophysics, structural biology, computational biology, systems biology, and bioinformatics.  

Instruction will take the form of lectures on clinically important antibiotics and bacterial resistance mechanisms, augmented by collaborative hands-on research projects focused on the computational biology, structural biology, biochemistry/enzymology, and evolution of antimicrobial resistance. There will also be career development activities student-driven topics-of-the-day, fun activities for relaxing, and an end-of-week networking opportunity.  


Students (undergraduate and graduate), staff, and faculty. Lectures open to all. Participants in dry lab exercises must register to attend (laptop required).
