Biomathematics at Hampshire

Hampshire College, along with three other liberal arts schools, received a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to form a consortium aimed at training the next generation of scientists in the rapidly emerging field of biomathematics. This funding has established the Four College Biomathematics Consortium (4CBC) to support joint investigations by faculty and students at Hampshire, Smith, Amherst, and Mount Holyoke Colleges into the most challenging life research questions at a critical moment in history.

What is Biomathematics?
The explosion of data being produced in all fields of biological investigation is one of the leading phenomena of 21st century science. Extracting meaning from these complex data sets, requires an interaction between biologists capable of asking sophisticated mathematical questions and mathematicians willing to delve into biology to develop tools relevant to living systems.
