WIMB: Women in Math Biology

WIMB | Conferences | People | Proceedings | Research | Contact Us

The “Women in Math Biology” community started from a series of workshops starting in 2013, with information below.

We want to feature women in math biology, on this site you will find research, related to math biology, the proceedings related to WIMB workshops, and
scholarly activities both past and future.

Please add your information to our people page, and find a list of women in math biology, including possible presentation speakers, collaborators, and mentors near you.

If you would like to join the Women in Mathematical Biology group listserv, email wimb+subscribe@awm-math.org. Questions? Email awm@awm-math.org.


We are hosting “Collaborative Workshop for Women in Mathematical Biology” which will be held at the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics June 17-21, 2019.  This workshop will tackle a variety of biological and medical questions using mathematical models to understand complex system dynamics. Working in collaborative teams of 4-5, each with a senior research mentor, participants will spend a week making significant progress with a research project and foster innovation in the application of mathematical, statistical, and computational methods in the resolution of significant problems in the biosciences.
