Undergraduate Research Grant - BEAM
The IBA sponsors an undergraduate research grant program called Project BEAM
(Biomathematics Education with Applications and Methods). Project BEAM will provide funds to cultivate undergraduate research at
member institutions. There are two funding tracks: one that requires institutional matching funds and one that supports faculty with no access to institutional research funding.
Additionally, there is funding designated specifically for CURE participants that work with institutional member faculty mentors. See the BEAM page for more information on CURE-BEAM funding.
Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration - PEER
Partners in Extending Education and Research (PEER) is an interdisciplinary scholarly support service program that the Center for Collaborative Studies in Mathematical Biology and Intercollegiate Biomathematics Alliance (IBA) is offering to educators, researchers, and scholars of cross-disciplinary fields. The PEER Program matches you with a data scientist, statistician, applied mathematician, or computer scientist who will collaborate with you on completing your project with a higher level data-science expertise than what may be common in your own field.
Community Course Offerings
The IBA is proud to offer courses to all students at member institutions.
These courses are shared across the IBA community and are recognized as credit-bearing towards the biomathematics degree at the member institution.
An updated list of available courses can be found on the IBA Courses page.
Letters in Biomathematics (LiB) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles that describe mathematical and statistical techniques to solve problems in biological settings or that address the study of the teaching and learning at the intersection of mathematics and biology. LiB is published by Taylor & Francis. The IBA sponsors its membership to publish in LiB at substantially reduced publication fees. Visit LiB for more information on the journal's content, manuscript submission information, and journal policies.
Spora: A Journal of Biomathematics is an open-access, refereed research journal dedicated to publishing high-quality manuscripts, written by graduate or undergraduate researchers during their time as students, that describe mathematical and statistical techniques to solve problems in biological settings. The IBA sponsors its membership to publish in Spora at reduced publication fees.
The IBA has a distance-learning enabled classroom. IBA members use this space for class meetings, seminars, workshops, research collaborations, and colloquia.

High Performance Parallel Computing Cluster
The IBA houses a high performance computer (HPC), which is a complete 6-node Beowulf style portable computational cluster that supports shared memory parallelism (OpenMP), distributed memory parallelism. The HPC is available to the Alliance members for their computing-intensive research. Members who do not have access to research-level computing facilities at their home institutions may request user accounts for remote access to the HPC.
