ISU Gets a Biomathematics Center

Biomathematics Center teams up with 9 different schools.

BLOOMINGTON - Illinois State University is partnering with nine other schools as a part of their Intercollegiate Biomathematics Alliance.  

The group is located on ISU's campus.

Mathematics Professor Olcay Akman said the center opened last week, but has been making progress for two years.

He said the center has a graduate program in biomathematics, but it's in the process of adding an undergraduate program.

"Thanks to the community, that consortium, the Intercollegiate Biomathematics formed," said Akman. "A student here can take classes from ISU, from a university in Wisconsin, from a university in Oregon, or from a university in Virginia. Just as their students can take classes from our institution."

Akman said that without the center, the students wouldn't have the resources they have access to, including a high-speed research computer.
