The Society for Mathematical Biology Committees are essential to the implementation of the Society’s stated purpose to encourage development and dissemination of knowledge at the interface between the mathematical and biological sciences. The Society has five committees: membership, publications, awards, nominating and finance.
Society members wishing to be more involved in Society committees are encouraged to submit their name to the Society President and Secretary.
