Mathematics in the Life Sciences

Mathematics reaches into almost every area of biology and medicine.

Quantitative methods are increasingly valued by biologists seeking to make sense of complex systems, or seeking to extract useful information from large experimental datasets. The life science and healthcare arenas are also rich sources of challenging new mathematical and statistical questions.

In the School of Mathematics, our interests span application areas such as biochemical and gene regulatory networks, biomechanics, cell migration and signalling, medical imaging, medical statistics, molecular evolution and population dynamics. These topics are pursued in collaboration with life science researchers in Manchester and beyond.

We also run a seminar series for Mathematics in the Life Sciences.

The web pages of individual team members provide information on our specific research interests.
