Abstract or Additional Information

I will present an introduction to some famous problems in mathematical biology, and present a broad overview of the kinds of mathematics that are often used in our field.  I’ll present some historical examples to show how mathematics has been of use in studying biology (e.g. William Harvey and the theory of circulation), as well as exploring some of the modern areas of mathematical biology and discussing how students can get involved in research.
