Systems biomedicine

Systems biomedicine is a highly interdisciplinary field that focuses on the applications of systems approaches to biological and medical problems. Research carried out in the centre focuses on applications of nonlinear dynamical systems and complex networks theory to a variety of living systems. Specific areas of active research in the centre include:

  • Mathematical neuroscience
  • Mathematical endocrinology
  • Computational biology; from subcellular to whole systems
  • Biological pattern formation
  • Circadian and ultradian rhythms
  • Cardiac modelling

Academic staff in mathematics with research interests in this area include

Dr Ozgur Akman  Systems biology, circadian rhythms, mathematical neuroscience
Professor Peter Ashwin  Cell transport processes, mathematical neuroscience
Professor Vadim N Biktashev  Cardiac modelling, mathematical ecology
Dr Marc Goodfellow  Epilepsy, micro RNA transcription factor networks
Professor John Terry  Biomedical systems, brain and endocrine modelling
