The University of Tennessee, Knoxville is a world center for research and training in the application of mathematics to biological problems. We are pleased to support the activities of the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics in their efforts to encourage the awareness of the importance of mathematics in biology by declaring April as Math Awareness Month with Mathematics and Biology as the theme. To celebrate this, we are hosting an event to illustrate the diversity of applications of mathematics to biology that are ongoing at UTK. The event is oriented towards high school students and teachers as well as lower division undergraduates. Mathematics and Biology Day at UTK will be held April 27, 1999. This will feature a set of brief presentations by distinguished UTK faculty who are some of the world's top experts in mathematical applications to various biological disciplines.
