Voting in the 2016 Society for Mathematical Biology elections began a few days ago. If you are a regular member of the Society for Mathematical Biology, it’s time to cast your ballot in the elections.
The Society for Mathematical Biology is a member-led organization. The Society for Mathematical Biology members influence and contribute to the society’s initiatives all year long — but the importance of voting in the society’s elections cannot be overstated. During this election period, please do your part to help determine how the Society for Mathematical Biology will be governed in the coming years.
The slate includes two candidates for President-Elect: Alexander R. A. Anderson (Moffitt Cancer Center) and Denise Kirschner (University of Michigan).
