On growth and pattern formation – A celebration of the wonderful Philip Maini

Professor Philip Maini is one of the greats of mathematical biology and a huge inspiration to myself and many others. In September 2019 I attended his 60th birthday workshop at the University of Oxford with some truly inspirational speakers.

I was introduced to the world of mathematical biology by Philip’s PhD supervisor Jim Murray who I was lucky enough to meet at the workshop. Philip has since advanced the mathematics of the life sciences in an almost unmeasurable way, from understanding cancer growth to embryonic development to cell movement

Listening to the speakers explaining their many professional and personal admiration for Philip was an experience I won’t forget.

A blog post exploring Philip’s many contributions, written for the conference by Santiago Schnell can be read here. Photos from the event are here.
