Welcome to the CMB website
The Centre for Mathematical Biology (CMB) at the University of Oxford is part of the Mathematical Institute and was established in 1983 as the first centre of its kind in Britain. Under the directorship of Professor James D. Murray, FRS, it was designed specifically to foster interdisciplinary research in the area. Since 1992, the CMB has been under the leadership of Professor Philip K. Maini. In 2005, Dr Ruth E. Baker was appointed the RCUK Fellow in Mathematical Biology and in 2010 she was appointed a University Lecturer in Mathematical Biology. In 2006, Dr Eamonn Gaffney was appointed as a University Lecturer in Mathematical Biology.
