In the 21st century, the interdisciplinary field of mathematical biology and medicine has firmly taken center stage as one of the major themes of modern applied mathematics, with strong links to the empirical biomedical sciences. New Perspectives in Mathematical Biology provides an overview of the distinct variety and diversity of current research in the field. In every chapter of this book, which covers themes ranging from cancer modeling to infectious diseases to orthopaedics and musculoskeletal tissue mechanics, there is clear evidence of the strong connections and interactions of mathematics with the biological and biomedical sciences that have spawned new models and novel insights. This book is loosely based on the plenary lectures delivered by some of the leading authorities on these subjects at the Society for Mathematical Biology (SMB) Conference that was held in Toronto in 2008 and will be of interest to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers currently engaged in this field, bringing the reader to the forefront of current research.
