New York Applied Topology Meeting Group

The New York Applied Topology Meeting Group is an informal meeting group composed of investigators at all career stages who are interested in topology and its applications in the sciences. Meetings take place roughly every two weeks at Columbia University Medical Center’s Irving Cancer Research Center. The meeting group is open to all.

For more information, or to inquire about speaking at an event, contact Anthea Monod at [am4691 at cumc.columbia.edu], or Pablo Camara at [pg2495 at cumc.columbia.edu].
