The art of mathematical biology: A foreword for the launch of BIOMATH


We cannot debate that the advances made over the past 30 years in molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology have dramatically changed biology and the biomedical sciences. Academic institutions and funding agencies increasingly recognize the interdisciplinary nature of biology and medicine, including the important role mathematical, statistical and computational modeling play in the analysis and interpretation of data and information. By and large, biologists and biomedical scientists appear to have more appreciation for mathematical biology research because they are increasingly attracted to discover new biological principles and mechanisms in collaboration with mathematicians.
