Research in the CMB

CMB members work on a variety of problems related to biological growth and spread. The focus may be at any level from molecular to cellular to whole organism. We are particularly active in the areas of ecology, epidemiology and evolution. Collaborations within, and beyond, the CMB are encouraged. The seminar series is just one forum in which people can present problems in the biological and life sciences that they feel may benefit from mathematical modelling.
