At iTHEMS, we facilitate collaboration between mathematics and other disciplines such as physics, biology, and the social sciences. Thanks to the success of molecular biology over the past decades, we now have abundant knowledge of genes and molecules. In coming years, mathematical approaches will play increasingly important roles in the advancement of biology and the life sciences. We even hope for the advent of new kinds of mathematics.
