The Collaboratorium is located in the Integrated Research and Innovation Center
The Collaboratorium for Modeling Complex Problems at the University of Idaho brings mathematical, statistical and molecular modeling together with biological expertise to solve interdisciplinary problems for a broad range of scales.
Many of the big, outstanding problems facing society involve highly complex processes such as health and health care delivery, climate change, urbanization and land use, and agriculture. Because these problems cut across traditional disciplines, solutions require a collaborative environment where researchers with different expertise can join forces. The Collaboratorium is designed to be a place where researchers work together using a broad range of modeling techniques, leading to innovative solutions, and where students and postdoctoral researchers are trained in multidisciplinary research.
