Dr. Cheryl Murphy creates National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis working group

Dr. Cheryl Murphy (Fisheries and Wildlife and Lyman Briggs College), along with Dr. Roger Nisbet (University of California, Santa Barbara) were approved a working group for the NSF sponsored National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) Center to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of molecular biologists, systems biologists, Dynamic Energy Budget and Adverse Outcome Pathway modelers, ecotoxicologists and mathematicians with interest and expertise in developing dynamic, mechanistic models to predict impacts on individuals from high throughput assays used to screen chemicals for potential risk. The working group will closely coordinate with the working group on "Modeling organisms to ecosystems" organized by Dr. Valery Forbes (University of Minnesota) and Dr. Chris Salice (Towson University) with the intent to develop a modeling framework that ultimately can link from molecular responses through whole organism responses to ecosystem service delivery.
