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.

Fingerprint The fingerprint is based on mining the text of the scientific documents related to the associated persons. Based on that an index of weighted terms is created, which defines the key subjects of research unit
