Scientists believe that complex diseases such as schizophrenia, major depression and cancer are not caused by one, but a multitude of dysfunctional genes. A novel computational biology method developed by a research team led by Ali Abdi, PhD, associate professor in NJIT's department of electrical and computer engineering, has found a way to uncover the critical genes responsible for disease development. >>
Horacio G. Rotstein, PhD, assistant professor in the department of mathematical sciences at NJIT, will discuss "The Mechanism of Abrupt Transition from Normal to Epileptic Spiking Activity in Medial Entorhinal Cortex Layer II Stellate Cells" at the Mathematical Biology Seminar Series on Oct. 28 at 4 p.m. in Cullimore Hall Room 611. >>
Dan Bunker, PhD, an assistant professor in NJIT's Federated Department of Biological Sciences, will discuss "Quantifying Species Functional Diversity with Convex Hull Volume" on October 14 at 4 p.m. in Cullimore Hall Room 611. The lecture is part of the Fall 2008 Mathematical Biology Seminar Series. >>
New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) will host May 19-21, 2008, more than 200 leading experts for the fifth annual Frontiers in Applied and Computational Mathematics Conference, an unusual three-day event featuring leading researchers who will discuss the latest news and research findings in their fields. >>
"Frontiers in Applied and Computational Mathematics," the fifth in a series of annual conferences organized by NJIT's Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics, will be held on May 19-21 at NJIT.
