ITiMS is a personalized training program. You’ll design a curriculum that meets your career goals. Training must include work with mathematical modeling, and laboratory and population approaches. Below is a downloadable template of the training plan and progress assessment as well as a list of approved courses.
A sampling of what you might do as an ITiMS student:
- Develop mathematical models to identify holes in the literature, and design studies.
- Conduct field investigations to collect samples.
- Conduct laboratory experiments to interrogate samples or test hypotheses.
- Use bioinformatics and statistical methods to analyze your results.
ITiMS also provides resources and opportunities for you to develop independent research projects; attend local, national and international meetings; and interact with leaders in microbial systems science.
