Society of Mathematical Biology awards prize to Dr. Moritz Thon

The best paper: The Society of Mathematical Biology's Lee A. Segel Prize goes to Dr. Moritz Thon, a former doctoral student at the Department of Mechanical Engineering.


Every second year the Society of Mathematical Biology awards the Lee A. Segel Prize and with its Best Paper Award it recognises the best research paper published in the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology in the preceding two years.

This year the jury selected the publication, "A Quantitative Model of Early Atherosclerotic Plaques Parameterized Using In Vitro Experiments", which Dr. Moritz Thon published as principal author. Dr. Thon is a former doctoral student at the Department of Mechanical Engineering and was an IGSSE scholarship holder taking part in the Biomat01 project. The paper was written during his IGSSE-funded study period in Sydney, Australia.

The Lee A. Segel Prize, awarded this week in Montreal, is worth a total of 5,000 US dollars and includes an invitation to present the research work at the Society of Mathematical Biology annual conference.
