Matheon makes maths for...

Life Sciences

Progress in medicine as well as biotechnology more than ever also relies on progress in mathematics to complement traditional lab-based approaches.
In close cooperation with medical doctors, engineers and pharmaceutical industry, Matheon successfully supports e.g. the design of patient-specific therapies, computer assisted surgery planning like implant design and systems biology. [...]

Welcome to the Research Center Matheon

The mission of Matheon is application driven mathematics. Our scientists develop new methods in modeling, simulation, and optimization for real world processes in all key technology areas. The research covers projects in the application areas Life Sciences, Networks, Energy and Materials, Electronic and Photonic devices as well as Geometric Design and Visualization. New methodologies are developed in interdisciplinary cooperation with project partners from industry, economy and science.

Matheon also cooperates with schools and the general public to raise public awareness in the wide applicability of mathematics and to attract new generations of young researchers.

Matheon is a joint research center of the three Berlin universities (Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin) and the mathematical research institutes WIAS (Weierstraß-Institut für Angewandte Analysis und Stochastik) and ZIB (Zuse Institut Berlin).

Research in Matheon is currently supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin via the Einstein Center ECMath.
