Ruian Ke Leads $5 Million DARPA Project to Fight Influenza Virus
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has approved a $5 million grant for an interdisciplinary, multi-institution project project led by Assistant Professor of Mathematics Ruian Ke to develop gene therapy approaches to fight the influenza virus. A major component of the project is mathematical modeling of influenza infection and evolution at the intracellular, host and population levels, and their interactions with the immune system. Collaborators include biologists, engineers, and material scientists at Duke, Rutgers, Montana State, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. More information is in this NC State news story.
Sharon Lubkin to represent SIAM on Joint Committee on Women in the Mathematical Sciences
Professor Sharon Lubkin has been appointed to represent the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics on the Joint Committee on Women in the Mathematical Sciences (JCW). She will serve a three-year term. Founded in 1971, JCW serves as a forum for communication among its eight member organizations about how each can enhance opportunities for women in the mathematical and statistical sciences. JCW disseminates information about effective mechanisms and best practices, and it can recommend actions to the governing bodies of its member societies.
