Program Goals

The Quantitative Methods Workshop is offered annually in collaboration with the NSF-Funded Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM).  Registration is by invitation only for students and faculty from a limited number of institutions with MARC, RISE, McNAIR, IMSD and HHMI programs.

Our current partner institutions include:

  • Brooklyn College
  • Florida International University
  • Howard University
  • Hunter College
  • North Carolina A&T State University
  • Spelman College
  • University of Central Florida
  • University of Massachusetts, Boston
  • University of Maryland, Baltimore County
  • University of Puerto Rico, Humacao
  • University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez
  • University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras
  • University of the Virgin Islands

This intensive workshop has been specifically designed to introduce students to quantitative tools and programming languages such as MATLAB and Python, which are routinely used to analyze experimental data in biology and neuroscience. This will also help students better prepare for summer research internships and make them more competitive graduate applicants.
