Mathematical models are increasingly used to investigate the behaviour of biological systems, at the core of a highly interdisciplinary topic connecting mathematical and physical sciences with biology and bioengineering.

The course will introduce key deterministic and stochastic mathematical approaches used at different biological scales or levels, including regulation of gene expression, cellular biology, organ function, organism physiology, or population dynamics. For each topic, the lecture will start from the biological background, build the model, present analytical and/or numerical methods to solve the model, and discuss model behaviour.
