The Segel prize recognizes outstanding research in the field of mathematical biology that has been published in the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology. The prize was established in memory of Lee A. Segel, who made great contributions to the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology and the field of mathematical biology as a whole. It is awarded every two years under two categories: Best Paper and Best Student Paper.
The Society for Mathematical Biology is pleased to announce the 2016 Segel Prize Winners:
