Women advancing mathematical biology

  • Samantha Erwin (North Carolina State University)


This session will tackle a variety of biological problems from participants in the third Women Advancing Mathematical Biology (WAMB) workshop. The WAMB workshop was held in April 2017 at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at The Ohio State University, and teams of senior and junior scientists and mathematicians were created to foster new research collaborations among women in mathematical biology. In this minisymposium, participants from this workshop will present on their ongoing research and foster continued collaborations with others at the conference. Since the workshop brought together a variety of participants and research areas, this session also includes a broad background of topics. The topics include: comparing continuous and discrete models of Ornithodoros moubata (soft ticks); stochastic models of super spreading events; fluid dynamics of nematocyst prey capture; and characterizing Clostridium difficile colonization through networks and mechanistic models. This session will combine ODE models, stochastic models, fluid dynamic models, and network models together in one session. Moreover, the models will span from in host bacteria models to population epidemiological models.
