The Center for Applied Mathematics and Bioinformatics (CAMB) is an interdisciplinary center conducts top-level research areas. It combines expertise from computational sciences, engineering, biosciences, economics, finance, and chemistry. The overarching aim is to promote collaborative and multidisciplinary activities between academia, industry and society enabled by computational science. The center resides since 2016 at the Gulf University of Science and technology (GUST) in Kuwait and has been established.
The uniqueness of the CAMB center stems from interdisciplinary research from diverse five cross-cutting research areas: (i) Systems Biology and Bioinformatics, (ii) Computational Finance and Economics, (iii) Data Science & Statistical Modeling, (iv) Scientific Computing, and (v) Cheminformatics and Molecular Modeling.
The CAMB conducts interdisciplinary research in the following five strategic research areas which share common methodological grounds. Each research area involving faculties and central academic institutes and backed by a number of collaborative research projects at both national and international level.
We define systems biology and Bioinformatics as a comprehensive tool for understanding molecular and cellular biosciences phenomena by making predictions, designing experiments and testing hypotheses underlying system behaviors and spatiotemporal processes.
We develop at CAMB new theoretical and unconventional computational modeling approaches based on reaction networks to identify key mechanisms underlying biosystems. We focus on various applications such as chromosome segregation mechanisms, cell cycle controls, and virus dynamics.
Computational Finance and economics is a newly CAMB developing research discipline at the interface of computational sciences, finance, economics, and management science. It is concerned with the analysis and implementation of computational problems which arise in different fields such as banking, ﬁnance and insurance industries
Data Science & Statistical Modeling at CAMB committed improving the understanding and draw useful knowledge from large and complex data. It focuses on research and education in central aspects of Data Science, primarily in computational statistics and machine learning, visual data science, optimization, large-scale computation, along with numerous application areas, such as computational finance and economics, artificial intelligence, computational biology, and personalized medicine
CAMB Scientific Computing research is concerned with the development and implementation of algorithms and efficient numerical methods for solving practical problems arising from various areas of science and engineering.
Chemoinformatics and Molecular Modeling at CAMB is dedicated to innovation in research and teaching at the interface between chemistry and computational sciences for solving practical problems of chemistry.
Academic Memberships of the Center for Applied Mathematics and Bioinformatics (CAMB) is open to individuals working in Applied Mathematics or bioinformatics in Kuwait, GCC, and the World. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent or in the final phase of their Ph.D.
If you are interested in a membership, please send us a resume together with a motivation letter. Then, the Steering Committee members meet to decide on membership applications. After a decision has been made, we will notify you and you will eventually become a CAMB member e.g. use our affiliation.
Please note that there are no financial obligations arising out of the CAMB membership. If you require any further information, feel free to contact us
Note: For non-academic membership regulations, please contact us for further details
