Mathematical Modeling in Biology

The aim of our team is to analyze, theoretically or in collaboration with experimentalists, biological systems and processes with an
approach which combines biological mechanisms and mathematical models which involve in particular partial differential equations and
dynamical systems.

Our current work is structured around two main axes :

The first focuses on neurosciences. On the one hand, we aim to understand the mechanisms underlying phenomena of synchronization/desynchronization if neurons discharge, depending on the strength of interconnections between then and the physiology of the neurons that constitute the network. On the other hand, a project consists in the study of learning brain functions.

The second project, in collaboration with the N. Minc's team, aims at understanding why and how, in yeast cells, the domain of polarisation
adapts to the geometry of the cell.
