NSERC-USRA Opportunity - Computational ViroPhysics

In Physics, our understanding of phenomena is expressed in terms of math expressions, e.g. F=ma or E=mc^2, which also allows us to make verifiable predictions beyond experimental observations. In Virology, there is little or no math, and this makes robust validation of knowledge and prediction impossible: let's work together to fix this! In your project, you will use scientific programming (probably coding in python) and math (mostly ODEs) to describe and study a specific aspect of a virus infection, like flu or HIV. Specifics of the project will depend on your skills and interests.
