Putting a ‘spotlight’ on FSU: Biomathematics program director earns prestigious fellowship

Richard Bertram

Long before he became a distinguished research professor of mathematics at Florida State University, Richard Bertram was a curious graduate student who joined the Society for Mathematical Biology in hopes of further connecting his interests and research in math and biology. He first attended the organization’s annual meeting in the early 1990s on his own, without knowing anyone there.

Today, Bertram, a two-time FSU alumnus and director of the FSU biomathematics program, has been named a fellow of the Society for Mathematical Biology. This international honor was granted in recognition of his career as a pioneer in math and biology research.
