Distinguished Professor Lecture
Date: Thursday, February 21, 2013
Place: Procrastinator Theater, Strand Union Building
Time: 4 PM, a reception will follow in the Leigh Lounge

Title: Mathematical Modeling in Biology: Successes and Challenges

Summary
: What role can mathematical models play in description of complex biological systems? In this talk, Dr. Gedeon will share some successes of mathematical models in modeling HIV, microbial consortia and transcriptional elongation. He will also discuss some mathematical challenges that limit applications to high dimensional systems that may arise in biology or climate modeling.

About the speaker: Gedeon’s contributions to a wide range of applied mathematical problems are nationally and internationally recognized. Over the last few years, he has published several important papers in mathematical neuroscience, systems biology and mathematical biology, and has developed an international reputation for his excellent and insightful contributions to our understanding of the structure and function of biological systems.
