Flyer for the Symposium on Probabilistic Methods in Biological Sciences (March 2020)

Understanding and controlling randomness is crucial in solving global challenges including contemporary problems in biology. To unite the scientists utilizing probabilistic methods to tackle biological problems, Ivan Corwin, Professor, Dept. of Mathematics, led a symposium on March 6, 2020, co-organized by the Herbert and Florence Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics and the Probability and Society Initiative.
