behaviour in biology
Collective cell motion arises in biology during normal development and during disease. We review recent work in a number of different
biological applications including the acid-mediated cell invasion hypotheses in cancer, epithelial tissue movement in the growing mouse embryo, and
cranial neural crest cell invasion. The models are, respectively, coupled
systems of partial differential equations, vertex-based cell movement model,
and hybrid agent-based model. We show that the models supply insights to
the biology and that, in the very simplest settings, these seemingly very
different models can all be represented at the tissue level as nonlinear reaction-diffusion models in which the nonlinearity in diffusion coefficients encapsulates the cell-level (local) behaviour assumptions.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONWe suggest a low intensity course for the academic year 2013-2014 that will give an overview of topics within the field of biomathematics at an international state-of-the art. At the same time it will give the students a solid preparation for the large European conference on biomathematics that is arranged every third year. This time it is our turn here in Gothenburg June 14-19, 2014, right at the end of the course.
The idea is to pick a series of internationally renowned biomathematicains invite them here to give a seminar and to pose a related one-credit assignment for the students to hand in to the examiner. We will in fact ask the guest lecturer to deliver two assignments: one for the graduate student who is theoretically inclined (e.g. mathematics, physics, computer science), and one for the student that has a more applied background (e.g. marine ecology, chemistry, zoology) . We will also encourage working in pair if it is a cross-disciplinary pair addressing both type of assignments.
We have been picking out a list of invitees that we believe would both accept the invitation and be suitable in that they all are excellent lecturers and together give a wide overview of the current state in the field.
After seven assignments has been graded and accepted, the graduate student will get 7.5 credits.
