Mathematical models of the vascular system are a pivotal component of mathematical biology woven between many important areas of the field, including developmental biology, oncology, drug development, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and more. The approach one takes to model the vascular system will vary depending on the biological question at hand and the translational application of the model. This mini-symposium aims to bring together mathematicians modelling the vascular system from different areas of biology, using different modelling strategies and with different perspectives to share their important research in a lively and diverse forum. In doing so, we are encouraging the integration and dissemination of new modelling techniques, knowledge and data between the different facets of mathematical vascular biology, which ultimately promotes the translation of vascular mathematical biology to clinically applicable outcomes.
