Welcome to the site of the Four College Biomath Consortium (4CBC)
Faculty in Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and Smith Colleges created the 4 College Biomath Consortium to encourage biomath research collaborations in the four colleges. The consortium is now funded by a $1M NSF UBM grant to train undergraduates in biomath research. more
Biomathematics, the use of mathematical modeling to understand biology, has a long history in the 5 College area. more
