Welcome to the website for the Mathematical Biology Group at UBC. We do interdisciplinary research applying mathematics in a wide range of biological fields including immunology, epidemiology, cell biology, electrophysiology, ecology, game theory and evolution. Our group, consisting of seven (soon to be eight) core faculty, many affiliated faculty in mathematics and elsewhere, and a good number of postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, is one of the best-established and largest in the field.

We teach undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematical biology. Graduate students receive degrees (Master's and PhD) as members of the UBC Institute of Applied Mathematics. We are always interested to hear from potential graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. We recruit from many different backgrounds, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, bioinformatics, engineering and the biological sciences. We often supervise undergraduate thesis projects (for instance, from the Biophysics and Integrated Science programs) and take on summer research undergraduate students.

We are pleased to be part of the new PIMS International Graduate Training Centre (IGTC) in Mathematical Biology. The IGTC is a distributed centre including participation of groups from across BC and Alberta. Click here for more information

The PIMS IGTC offers scholarships to incoming students at UBC, among other universities. New and continuing students are encouraged to apply.
