In the 1990s, Lucier continued to expand the scientific basis for risk assessment when he joined efforts with NIEHS biomathematician Chris Portier to transform science's understanding of receptor-mediated toxicology.
Dr Vergu is a biomathematician in the Applied Mathematics and Computer Science Unit at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research.
During the past couple of decades, predator-prey models with diffusion in a patchy environment have attracted significant attention from ecologists, biologists, and biomathematicians. Many important works and monographs about the properties of population dynamics in a spatial idiosyncratic environment, for example, permanence, extinction, and global asymptotic stability of positive periodic solutions, have been written (see [2-14]).
By repeating this thousands of times, and then working with IFR's biomathematicians, it was possible to produce a 'fingerprint' that characterise different mucins, which means that we could differentiate between mucins derived from different parts of the gut.
(28.) Here I am not at all advocating extreme mathematical relativism, which is no solution at all, given the fact that we shall continue to engage, and be engaged by, evolutionist biomathematicians. On the contrary, what I have in mind is a meta-mathematical, methodological equivalence of creationary and evolutionary biomathematics as a shared basis for mutual constructive engagement, somewhat along the lines of Stephen C.
