About MiLS

Mathematics in Life Sciences (MiLS) is a research network funded by the London Mathematical Society and Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (through EPSRC grant (Ref: EP/V521929/1)). MiLS’ main aim is to bring together mathematicians working at the interface with life sciences, to discuss the mathematics underpinning the modelling and analysis of the life science applications.

We organise 3 meetings per year, each with a different theme. Meetings will usually consist of two review talks aimed at non-experts, combined with several contributed research talks. We strongly encourage PhD students, postdocs and early career researchers to submit a contributed talk. The additional funding from INI will enable 2-day workshops to be held from May 2023 to March 2025.

Meetings will be hosted by The University of Birmingham, the University of Exeter, and the University of Nottingham. The additional INI funding allows VU Amsterdam to join our network.

Limited funds are available to reimburse expenses incurred by speakers or other participants. Claimants should request an expense form by emailing Rachel Nicks.

We are committed to making our meetings accessible to scientists who have children or family responsibilities, therefore we would like to contribute to any additional costs of childcare or domestic arrangements necessary for speakers and others to attend workshops. Besides the limited funding provided by MiLS, we draw your attention to the LMS Caring Supplementary Grants.

If you would like to propose a theme for one of our future meetings, please contact the organisers via email.
