Mathematical Biology

*Sponsored by the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM)*

3:45 PM-5:45 PM

*Room: Georgia 8*

In this minisymposium four female post-docs will present work on
applications of mathematics in biological scenarios. Most of the
applications involve ordinary or partial differential equations,
governing population models. Cancer, nasal passages and anticoagulant
models will be included.
