Organisation profile

Modelling life. Biology is the science of life. Mathematical biology transforms the processes of living systems into model systems of equations. Mathematical analysis of these models helps us to understand the roles and interactions of different components of the system. These relationships are often complex and surprising! We can also use models to make predictions and conduct experiments. Mathematical biology spans all areas of the life sciences, from molecular biochemistry to ecology, epidemiology and evolution.  

The Centre was set up in 1994 to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between mathematicians, biologists and other scientists at the University of Bath. Its membership includes about twenty academic staff, their postdoctoral researchers and postgraduate students.

  • SDG 4 - Quality Education
  • SDG 5 - Gender Equality
  • SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  • SDG 10 - Reduced Inequalities
  • SDG 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production
  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
  • SDG 14 - Life Below Water
  • SDG 15 - Life on Land
  • SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
