University of Minnesota Mathematical Biology Program: Mathematical Biology at Minnesota encompasses a wide range of research and teaching activities. Research opportunities are available at both the undergraduate level and the graduate level. The former includes an NSF-funded REU grant, the university-wide UROP (undergraduate research opportunity programs), departmental honors theses, and a university-wide summer school in bioinformatics. Graduate research covers theoretical neuroscience, pattern formation in developmental biology, modeling and analysis of cell motility, and .... A number of joint interdisciplinary research projects in Biology, Physiology, and Engineering are in place and many other projects are open.
Graduate training comprises core mathematical coursework, a broad range of applied mathematics in the department, and applied courses taken outside the department. Graduate courses in Mathematical Biology offered in the department include courses on mathematical modeling in biology, theoretical neuroscience, dynamical systems, complex networks, pattern formation, and cell motility. Support for graduate students is available from NIH training grants in biotechnology and in developmental biology, as well as NIH and NSF grants to individual faculty.
At the undergraduate level there is a Mathematics major with a Mathematical Biology emphasis that involves several specialized courses.
