Congratulations to Professor Philip Maini FRS, Professorial Fellow in Mathematical Biology at St John’s, who has been awarded the Arthur T. Winfree Prize by the Society of Mathematical Biology.

Professor Philip K MainiProfessor Maini has been awarded the prize for his work on mathematical modelling of spatiotemporal processes in biology and medicine. In the words of the citation, his work ‘has led to significant scientific advances not only in mathematics, but also in biology and the biomedical sciences. His mathematical oncology research has provided detailed insight into the design of combination cancer therapies.’

Philip will receive his award at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society of Mathematical Biology, at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City in July.

On being awarded the Prize, Professor Maini said, ‘Arthur Winfree was a very major figure in the field of mathematical biology and I feel very honoured to be awarded this prize.’
