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 1190. 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 * Friday, March 5, 2010 at 4:30 pm in BA 1190 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.
