Mathematical Biology Research Group

Researching Epidemiology, Ecology, Physiology, and more

The Mathematical Biology Research Group began at the University of Central Oklahoma in 2012. The mission is to provide interdisciplinary research experience to students through collaborative research with faculty and staff at UCO, as well as other organizations in the community and beyond.

Our students have experience with some calculus, linear algebra, or differential equations and learn how to apply these tools through modeling and study models using computers and analysis.


Cancer immunology, blood clot physiology, infectious disease, ecology of desert turtles, population dynamics of endangered species, mathematical neuroscience, and much more.


Interested students or potential collaborators should contact Dr. Brittany Bannish in STEM 246, the Mathematical Biology Office, or Dr. Sean Laverty in STEM 244.
