Synergistic Activities: 

Symbiosis is the curriculum for the ETSU Governor’s school “Scientific Models and Data Analysis.”  Karl Joplin and Jeff Knisley, instructors.  Hugh Miller, Labs. 

“In Fall 2009, East Tennessee State University (ETSU) and Georgia Technological University cooperated in an unprecedented curricular experiment.  The Institute for Quantitative Biology (IQB) at ETSU offered a course in Predictive Modeling which was coupled with a Biomedical Engineering Laboratory at The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, under the direction of Dr. Esfandiar Behravesh.”  (from the IQB webpage).
