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

Meet our current 4CBC research fellows! more


Smith and Hampshire College faculty have approved the Five College Biomathematical Sciences Certificate Program.  We hope to launch the 5CBC in Fall.  Stay tuned.

BMX 100 has been renumbered IDP 170.  Same course, new number. Check the course webpage in summer for details about faculty and modules for Fall 2016.

Summer 2016 4CBC Fellowship applications are being accepted.   Follow the instructions here.

Biomath students are encouraged to apply for research fellowships. Contact Denise Lello (dlelloatSmithdot edu) for more information. Eligible students (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) can receive stipends for biomath research projects ranging from molecular level investigations to ecosystems level questions.
