NOVA Math > Thematic Lines > Biomathematics



Nowadays, Biology is a focal discipline for many sciences, and its connexion to Mathematics significantly grew during the last years. Complex mathematical models are increasingly used in studies from various fields of Biology, and sophisticated computer applications produce results that support actions by decision makers.

The enormous variety of mathematical questions addressed (e.g, modelling suitable conditions for species, estimating impacts of climate changes, study of emerging diseases, cancer modelling, etc), and the speed at which studies are developed to respond to pressing questions, are factors that incur serious risks regarding the suitability of models and, consequently, conclusions and eventual decisions. Thus, there is an urgent need for a greater interaction between mathematicians and biologists.

The Thematic Line of Biomathematics provides the natural forum for this interaction, joining colleagues from different research groups, actively engaged in questions relating Mathematics and Biology.
