MBE is bimonthly, focusing on new developments in the fast-growing fields of mathematical biosciences and bioengineering. MBE is now online only.

Authors will be granted full access to all MBE publications for one year.

Areas covered include general mathematical methods and their applications in biology, medical sciences and bioengineering with an emphasis on work related to mathematical modeling, nonlinear and stochastic dynamics.

The editorial board of MBE is strongly committed to promoting cutting-edge integrative and interdisciplinary research bridging mathematics, life sciences and engineering.
