Mathematical modeling and numerical methods play an important role in biomedical sciences nowadays. A diversity of mathematical models and techniques ranging from solving partial differential equations and stochastic modeling to applying machine learning algorithms to image and data analysis has been tackled and explored, with many interesting applications such as improving the medical imaging to identify pathological tissue better, studying patient RNA-sequencing data to facilitate disease diagnosis, computational analysis to design patient-specific treating plans to improve the treatment outcomes and so on. This mini-symposium plans to gather mathematicians and field experts with various biomedical research interests to share their modeling techniques, discuss the associated challenges, stimulate new research collaborations, and connect different applications that similar mathematical approaches may apply.
