IHP trimester on Mathematical Biology:

Mathematical  modeling  of  organization  in  living  matter


Centre Emile Borel, Institut Henri Poincaré, Paris, January to April 2022


Organizers: Luis Almeida, Vincent Calvez, Marie Doumic, Benoit Perthame, Patricia Reynaud-Bouret

Despite the immense progresses made over the last decades in mathematical biology, the multifaceted nature of biological processes still represents an enormous challenge for mathematical modeling. Technological advances lead to many new experimental observations, which can then be used to improve the accuracy of modeling. As a result, sophisticated mathematical methods have be- come crucial for addressing the key questions and paradigms in diverse biological systems, for making predictions of the effects of system perturbations and for their control.

The goal of this program is three-fold: Emphasize the role of Analysis and Partial Differential Equations in understanding biological phenomena, foster cooperation among researchers in those subject areas from everywhere in the world, and expose students and researchers to challenging problems in the fields of living systems (biology and medicine). An opening to the communities of statistics and probability will be present all through the trimester. To make sure that the interaction of mathematics with other sciences will play an important part in the discussions we will have many members of other scientific communities (in particular Biologists, Epidemiologists, Ecologists and Biophysicists) participating in the different events. The main scientific events of the trimester will be:


Workshop on tissue growth and movement, January 10-15, 2022.
Organizers: Luis Almeida, Chloe Audebert, Thomas Lepoutre, Tommaso Lorenzi and Benoit Perthame

Workshop on Mathematical Modeling and Statistical Analysis in Neuroscience, January 31 - February 4, 2022.
Organizers: Susanne Ditlevsen, Olivier Faugeras, Antonio Galves, Patricia Reynaud-Bouret, Delphine Salort and Shigeru Shinimoto.

Workshop on Mathematical models in ecology and evolution, March 2022.
Organizers: Vincent Calvez, Florence Débarre, Jimmy Garnier and Amandine Véber

Graduate courses (M2 and doctoral level): Odo Diekmann, Adrian Lam.

Closing school, April 4-8, 2020




The official call for participation by Ithe Centre Emile Borel will be opened by the end of 2020.
