Organismal Systems Modeling (OSyM) Research Coordination Network receives funding from NSF

We received notification from NSF that the OSyM Research Coordination Network was provided funding of $500,000 for five years.  The idea for this RCN emerged from a series of workshops designed to develop a research program to address Grand Challenge Questions in Organismal Biology, particularly how organisms walk the tightrope between stability and change.  A goal of this RCN is to facilitate the building of collaborations among organismal biologists, engineers of various types, and modelers to use systems-type models to address questions across a wide range of areas of organismal biology.  Anyone with an interest in this RCN is welcome!
