PSW@MBI was a week-long workshop where participating mathematical modelers tackle questions proposed by life science researchers. The workshop gave the opportunity to practitioners and researchers in medicine and the biosciences who present problems to exploit the expertise of applied mathematical faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students in working toward solutions to their problems.
