Mathematical Biology Group

Founded 1 February 2012


To foster and promote the development and application of mathematics in biology


Mathematical Biology Group - Rules


  • organise seminars, workshops and conferences on mathematics and biology;
  • organise small-group meetings on particular themes, related to mathematics and biology;
  • maintain a web resource page with information on the members and their interests and publish information on existing and prospective PhD/Honours projects and courses on mathematical biology;
  • conduct joint activities with other bodies concerned with fields where mathematics and biology are relevant;
  • encourage the interaction of users of mathematics in biological applications across academia, government and industry;
  • build and strengthen a sense of community within the researchers in the areas of mathematical biology in Australia and New Zealand.

As part of these activities, there is the ANZIAM MBSIG Best Student Paper Prize, awarded annually (starting 2018), for an exceptional paper in the field of mathematical biology.

Dissemination of information is through the MB SIG Google group:!forum/mbsig

Please "subscribe to this group" if you would like to participate or be kept informed of activities.
