The Center for Applications of Mathematics to Medicine was founded in February 2016. The center is based in the College of Arts and Sciences and its members hail from a variety of Departments at the University of Delaware: Mathematical Sciences; Biological Sciences; Biomedical Engineeering; Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering; Electrical and Computer Engineering; and more. The faculty and students from these units work closely with doctors to develop mathematical models to better understand their data and their patients' conditions. The doctors come from Christiana Care Health System; Nemours / A. I. duPont Hospital for Children; Thomas Jefferson University; Indiana University; and The Ohio State University.
Our activities include: Research projects developing mathematical models to improve understanding and treatment including neonatal heart conditions, atherosclerosis, dry eye syndrome, and other conditions. Summer research experiences for students are an important activity in our work. We assemble teams to develop these models and to train the next generation of innovative scientists in mathematical modeling for medicine. Seminars are an important way for fellow mathematicians, scientists, engineers and doctors to exchange ideas, approaches, challenges and best practices. Conferences are also an important way to share our progress, and to find inspiration and new approaches for our own challenges.
If you have a challenge that may benefit from a new viewpoint or a quantitative approach, the people in CAMM are ready to discuss it.
