Welcome to the Society for Mathematical Biology

The Society for Mathematical Biology promotes the development and dissemination of research at the interface between the mathematical and biological sciences through its meetings, awards, and publications. The Society serves a diverse community of researchers and educators in academia, industry, and in government agencies throughout the world.

To foster scientific excellence at the interface between quantitative and life sciences, the Society connects scientists and educators at the SMB annual meeting and through the top quality research published in the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, honors key contributions to Mathematical Biology by members through international awards, and provides travel, conference, and career support to scientists at all career stages. Members reach out to people all over the world, from schoolchildren and scientists to political leaders, to share the excitement and value of scientific research at the interface of the mathematical and biological sciences.


"Mathematical biologists apply mathematical, computational and experimental techniques to investigate biological processes at all levels, from the molecular to the population. We are a diverse community aiming to understand the mechanisms of biological processes."
Santiago Schnell, President
