Mathematical Biology SMART Team/Directed Study Group

Starting in Fall 2019, the mathematical biology group is officially a mathematical biology SMART Team as part of the NSF Funded NSF Funded Data-Intensive Research And Computing (DIRAC) Research Training Group (RTG).

We meet weekly to discuss reearch involving the application of mathematical tools (such as mathematical modeling, computational simulation) to the study of biological systems. Our topics cover a range of biological processes including, but not limited to, protein aggregation, population genetics & structural variation, and dynamics of marine animals.

Our group is led by Professor Suzanne Sindi ( and consists of graduate students, postdocs and faculty in the Applied Mathematics, Physics and Quantitative & Systems Biology graduate programs. 

For Fall 2023, we will be meeting Wednesday from 10:00am-11:00am in ACS 362B. We will post our updated schedule on this website once it is complete. You can follow our activities at our Twitter Account.
