A perfect trio of women mathematical biologists

Dr. Julia Arciero

Dr. Anita Layton

Dr. Diana Thomas

Over the last three days, we have posted three videos of three different women pioneering their way in the field of mathematical biology. Dr. Julia Arciero is an assistant professor in the mathematical sciences department at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis developing new models to address problems involving components of the circulatory system and inflammation, as in wound healing and necrotizing enterocolitis. Dr. Arciero visited NIMBioS as a participant of the NIMBioS Investigative Workshop on Modeling Renal Hemodynamics. Dr. Anita Layton is an assistant professor in the math department at Duke University and uses mathematical biology to help understand the functions of the kidney. Dr. Layton was a co-organizer of the Renal Hemodynamics workshop at NIMBioS. Dr. Diana Thomas is an associate professor of mathematics at Montclair State University and uses mathematical biology to help understand obesity. Dr. Thomas was co-organizer of the NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Mathematical Models of Metabolism and Body Weight Regulation. NIMBioS videos include interviews with top scientists, features on interesting research underway at NIMBioS, and news summaries of special events and programs at NIMBioS. Visit our video page. To participate in a NIMBioS investigative workshop, educational activity, or to request support for your own research, visit our Research and Training Opportunities page.
