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.
