Our mission - Mathematics applied to all aspects of medicine and biology


The mission of CMALS is to promote interdisciplinary research and scholarship in Mathematics applied to the Life Sciences, in the broadest sense.

The main themes of our research are:

  • Disease;
  • Treatment and diagnosis;
  • Ecosystems and Biodiversity.

Research across the Centre varies considerably and includes heart modelling, biological fluid dynamics, soft tissue mechanics, drug delivery, medical devices, marine science, ecology and epidemiology.

We welcome new enquiries from academics, companies and clinicians. Contact us to discuss possible collaboration and to find out about some existing funding opportunities to support this.

The Centre is a collaboration between the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde and was established in 2003 under the Synergy agreement.
