By George Casella

On April 26-28, 2001, the Board on Mathematical Sciences and Their purposes (BMSA) and the Board on existence Sciences of the nationwide learn Council cosponsored a workshop at the dynamical modeling of advanced biomedical structures. The workshop's target was once to spot a few open learn questions within the mathematical sciences whose answer may give a contribution to special unsolved difficulties in 3 common components of the biomedical sciences: illness states, mobile strategies, and neuroscience. The workshop drew a various team of over eighty researchers, who engaged in vigorous discussions.

To show the workshop's pleasure extra generally, and to assist extra mathematical scientists get to grips with those very fertile interface components, the BMSA appointed certainly one of its individuals, George Casella, of the collage of Florida, as rapporteur. He constructed this precis with assistance from colleagues from his college, Rongling Wu and Sam S. Wu, assisted through Scott Weidman, BMSA director.

This precis represents the point of view of its authors in basic terms and shouldn't be taken as a consensus document of the BMSA or of the nationwide examine Council.
