Springer will publish lecture series with the Mathematical Biosciences Institute

November 07, 2013

Springer and the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI) in the US have signed a publishing agreement to collaborate on the Mathematical Biosciences Institute Graduate Lecture Series. The lecture series consists of readable, up-to-date collections of authored volumes that are tutorial in nature and are inspired by annual programs at the MBI. Publication will commence in early 2014.

The purpose of the MBI Graduate Lecture Series is to provide curricular materials that illustrate the applications of the mathematical sciences to the life sciences. The collections are organized as independent volumes, each one suitable for use as a two-week module in standard graduate courses in the mathematical sciences. They are written in a style accessible to researchers, professionals and graduate students. The MBI Graduate Lecture Series can also serve as an introduction for researchers to recent and emerging subject areas in the mathematical biosciences.

All books in the lecture series will be available as eBooks on Springer's online platform, SpringerLink (link.springer.com), and in print. The Mathematical Biosciences Institute has editorial oversight of the series and Springer will publish, market and sell the books. Approximately five to eight books are planned each year.

Marty Golubitsky, Director of the Mathematical Biosciences Institute, said, "Interaction between the mathematical and life sciences is rapidly expanding to the benefit of both disciplines. The MBI Graduate Lecture Series aims to accessibly showcase some of the recent and exciting research at this interface."

Achi Dosanjh, Senior Editor Mathematics at Springer, said, "Springer is delighted to be working with the Mathematical Biosciences Institute to provide professional publishing, international marketing and distribution services for the MBI lectures."

The Mathematical Biosciences Institute fosters innovation in the application of mathematical, statistical, and computational methods in the resolution of significant problems in the biosciences. In addition, the institute encourages the development of new areas in the mathematical sciences motivated by important questions in the biosciences. To accomplish this mission, MBI holds many weeklong research workshops each year, trains postdoctoral fellows and sponsors a variety of educational programs.
