Researchers working at the Centre for Mathematical Biology are interested in the development and utilisation of mathematical and computational techniques for the exploration of biological systems. Collectively, our aim is to further our understanding of the mechanisms underlying biological processes by building biologically realistic mathematical/computational models, testing and refining them using currently available experimental data, and making experimentally verifiable predictions. Most of our projects involve collaboration with both theoretical and experimental researchers working in Oxford, the UK and further afield.
Our current research areas include, but are not limited to: cancer modelling; chemotaxis; collective behaviour; gene regulatory networks; multiscale modelling; pattern formation; sperm dynamics and neuroscience.
