2010 Julian Cole Lectureship awarded to John King, University of Nottingham
Date:8/23/2010

SIAM awards the Julian Cole Lectureship every four years for an outstanding contribution toward the mathematical characterization and solution of a challenging problem in the physical or biological sciences, or in engineering. Contributions in the development of mathematical methods for the solution of such problems are also recognized. Established in 2000, the prize is awarded in honor of the legendary American mathematician, Julian D. Cole, who was best known for his research in nonlinear equations.

This year's Julian Cole Lectureship was awarded to Professor John King in recognition of his influential contributions to the formulation and analysis of mathematical models of tumor growth. In his Julian Cole Lecture, "Mathematical Modelling of Tissue Growth," King described continuum modeling of biological tissue growth with a focus on novel aspects of partial differential equations formulations that result in biological contexts, and on singular-perturbation methods in the elucidation of model properties.

King is Professor of Theoretical Mechanics and Deputy Head of the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham, UK. After receiving his DPhil in Applied Mathematics from Oxford University in 1986, he worked with Julian Cole as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for two years. His research interests include mathematical medicine, most notably tumor biology and tissue engineering, systems biology, industrial mathematical modeling, and linear and nonlinear differential equations.

King received $1,000 and a certificate and presented the Julian Cole Lecture at the SIAM Annual Meeting, which took place July 12-16, 2010, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
