Cassandra is a Co-PI on a 5 million dollar award fom the National Science Foundation and the Simons Foundation, to establish the NSF/Simons Center for the Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Biology at Harvard University. This is one of four NSF/Simons-funded centers in the US that will support novel research that aims to develop and use new mathematical and statistical tools to understand biological problems, particularly cell fate acquisiiton, self-assembly, and morphogenesis. At Harvard, we will work closely with the Quantitative Biology Initiative. Read the Harvard Gazette article.
