Dear Math Students,

The Math Union will be hosting a general seminar* given by Professor Sivabal
Sivaloganathan of the Center for Mathematical Medicine at the Fields'
Institute for Mathematical Sciences on Friday March 5 at 4:30pm in Bahen

His talk will present some of the major challenges and advances in
biology of which mathematics has played an important role.  I hope you are
excited to hear this talk.  Professor Sivaloganathan is a wonderful speaker
and is sure to inspire awe and wonder for the field of mathematical biology
at every level.

Everyone is welcome.

Hope to see you there,

Richard Cerezo
Co-President, Undergraduate Math Union

Mathematical and Computational Challenges in
the Biomedical Sciences

Speaker:  Professor Siv Sivaloganathan, University of Waterloo

Abstract:  It has become somewhat of a cliche to say that biology
will be to mathematics in the 21st century, what physics was to
mathematics in the 20th century.  However, it is not an
exaggeration to say that Mathematical Biology/Medicine
is growing more rapidly than any other area of science,
spurred on by numerous successes over the last few decades.
Although this talk will be quite general in nature, I will
give some examples of some of the successful applications of
mathematics to the biomedical sciences, and discuss the greater
role that can be played by mathematics as biology and
the biomedical sciences become more quantitative sciences.

Open to everyone. Refreshments will be served beforehand
at 4:00 p.m. on the 6th floor math lounge.
