Mathematical Biology



Research in Mathematical Biology is extremely diverse in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, with faculty members working on a wide variety of modern problems ranging from the molecular scale to the organism level. Current research projects include the fluid mechanics of tear films and the effect of the blink cycle, models of atherosclerotic plaque, transport in bone and osteoporosis, imaging of bone marrow and the collective dynamics of ants.

The Department is an active partner in a Howard Hughes Medical Institute grant, which has also been awarded to the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Biological Sciences. The grant has successfully overseen the creation of a new Quantitative Biology major, housed within Mathematical Sciences, which engages students in an integrative and interdisciplinary study program.

Many of our faculty members are affiliated with the Delaware Biotechnology Institute ( which maintains active programs and seminars related to the biological sciences.​​
