The Maud Menten Institute: 2024-2027

The primary purpose of the Maud Menten Institute (MMI) is to provide a collaborative research platform for mathematical biologists at PIMS sites to promote interactions with life science experts and
decision makers in government, industry and NGOs. The secondary purpose of the Maud Menten Institute is to develop the required training program for the non-academic pipeline in mathematical biology. This program will allow new generations of mathematical biologists to impact biological fields inside and outside of academia and will explicitly establish mathematical biology as a powerful tool of investigation in biology.
