This mini-symposium will present a variety of biological and medical questions using mathematical models to understand complex system dynamics. Mathematical modeling and analysis of problems originating in biological and life sciences is of fundamental importance to both scientific research and health policy. All four speakers are from the collaborative teams of Women in Mathematical Biology. We aim to illustrate our significant progress with research projects (e.g., antibiotic-resistance bacteria and phage therapy, cancer treatment, polarization of a single macrophage, and photoreceptors) and to foster innovation in the application of mathematical, statistical, and computational methods in the resolution of problems in mathematical biology. In addition to presenting our work, we aim to foster research collaboration among women in mathematical biology.
