Mathematical Biology Members

The Mathematical Biology Activity Group at CAIMS is the organisational hub of mathematical biology in Canada. To facilitate communication and cross-fertilization of ideas among members of the group, we plan to host a mixer and to sponsor a plenary talk at the CAIMS annual meeting, we plan to hold an annual one-day symposium on mathematical biology in conjunction with the CAIMS annual meeting, we offer this website, our facebook page, and an email list. Current members of the group are listed below together with their research areas. We always welcome new members. If you are interested, please send an email to Xingfu Zou (xzou <at> uwo.ca).
