Option "Mathematics for biology and medecine"


The option « Mathematics for biology and medecine : theory and applications » is one of the four options of the research program "Maths in Action".


The goal of this program is triple : provide an introduction to classical mathematical tools, mathematical modeling, and different biological concepts. This program provides

  1. Strong theorectical bases allowing to handle a large amount of mathematical problems related to biology and medecine;
  2. Knowledge in mathematical modeling (discrete and continuous models, stochastic and deterministic, hybride, and multi-scale) ;
  3. Knowledge in biology on three different topics :  epidemiology ; population dynamics ; genetics. 




All the lectures of this option hold in Univ. Lyon 1 and Écully (École Centrale)
