The first-ever "Math and Medicine" gathering was held at the A. I. DuPont Hospital for Children on January 7, 2015. The purpose of the meeting, organized by Profs. Toby Driscoll and Gilberto Schleiniger, and physician and adjunct faculty member Dr. Michael McCulloch, was to find ways to assist local physicians meet research and clinical needs, by building on the expertise generated by numerous existing collaborations between Mathematical Sciences faculty and physicians. Nine faculty, three graduate students, and about ten physicians were in attendance. 

After some brief introductory remarks from the organizers, the physicians commented on opportunities to get faculty and students involved in medical research at the hospital. Then there were many lively one-to-one conversations in which physicians and faculty searched for overlapping research interests and capabilities. 

Given the warm and enthusiastic reception from the physicians, more meetings are planned for the future in which the doctors can give short presentations describing their work for the faculty, and faculty go into more detail on their expertise. Meetings with physicians at Christiana Care are also planned for the near future.
