Welcome to the WCMB website
The Wolfson Centre for
Mathematical Biology (WCMB) at the University of Oxford is
part of the Mathematical
Institute and was established in 1983 as the first centre of
its kind in Britain. Under the directorship of Professor James D. Murray, FRS, it was designed
specifically to foster interdisciplinary research in the area. Since 1992, the WCMB has been under the leadership of
Professor Philip K. Maini. In 2005, Dr Ruth E.
Baker was appointed the RCUK Fellow in Mathematical Biology and in
2010 she was appointed a University Lecturer in Mathematical Biology. In 2006,
Dr Eamonn Gaffney was appointed as a University
Lecturer in Mathematical Biology. Dr Derek Moulton was appointed University
Lecturer in Mathematical Biology in 2012 and Professor Radek Erban holds a Royal Society University Research
Fellowship. In October 2013 the CMB was renamed the Wolfson Centre for Mathematical Biology to acknowledge funding from the Wolfson Foundation.
