Biological processes are very complex, and mathematical models of such
processes are at best just a crude approximation. Nevertheless, one can
gain some useful knowledge from the models. In this talk, I shall give
examples of biological and biomedical problems that have been addressed
by mathematical models. The examples will be from areas as diverse as
neuroscience, cancer, and aging.
