Dr. Christine Heitsch received the Petit Institute "Above and Beyond" Senior Faculty Award December 14, 2018.

Dr. Heitsch is Professor of Mathematics at Georgia Tech, with courtesy appointments in Biological Sciences and Computational Science & Engineering as well as an affiliation with the Petit Institute for Bioengineering & Bioscience.

She is also Director of the new Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology (SCMB), an NSF-Simons MathBioSys Research Center, and finishing her tenure directing the GT Interdisciplinary Mathematics Preparation and Career Training (IMPACT) Postdoctoral Program.

Heitsch's research interests lie at the interface between discrete mathematics and molecular biology, specifically combinatorial problems "as motivated by" and "with applications to" fundamental biomedical questions like RNA folding.

The SCMB Annual Symposium is a forum to exchange ideas between the broader mathematics and biosystems communities. There will be plenary talks from mathematicians and biologists, organized in complementary pairs, as well as a a public lecture. These will be offered at a colloquium level of detail with an emphasis on engaging the full range of mathematical and biological researchers. A poster session will facilitate discussions among participants in a less formal setting. This will encourage interactions which may then nucleate new research collaborations at the math-bio interface. The overall goal of the SCMB Symposium is not just to highlight the many challenges and opportunities at the math-bio interface, but to create a vibrant community advancing the mathematics of complex biological systems.

SCMB has funding to partially support participants, and priority in allocation will be given to graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers, including tenure-track faculty, and especially to those who are presenting posters. If funding allows, we may be able to fund additional participants.
