Mathematics and Science Communication and Society (MSc)
The master’s specialisation Mathematics and Science Communication and Society at Leiden University bridges the gap between experts and the public by combining high quality research in mathematics with extensive training in science communication.

Theoryenriched practical knowledge in mathematics teacher education
This study looks at the question of how and at what level students in primary teacher education can integrate theory and practice, and how the organisation of their learning environment, focusing especially on mathematics and pedagogy, can contribute to that.

Mathematical modelling of adverse outcome pathways
In this project, we aim to develop mathematical models to mechanistically and quantitatively predict the dynamics of cellular stress pathway activation and its relation with toxic effects when cells are exposed to various toxicants.

Mathematical analysis of systems pharmacology models
Systems pharmacology aims to apply techniques from systems biology to pharmacological models.

Topics in mathematical and applied statistics

reform: an empirical research about the implementation of national mathematics curriculum reform in China
This is a research project on the implementation of national mathematics curriculum reform in Chinese junior high school. The research is expected to provide insight into the ways and reasons of mathematics teachers in Chinese junior high school for implementing national curriculum reform.

Multiscale mathematical biology of cellextracellular matrix interactions during morphogenesis
During embryonic growth, cells proliferate, differentiate, and collectively migrate to form different tissues at the right position and time in the body.

Prediction of spatialtemporal brain drug distribution with a novel mathematical model
A novel mathematical model describes spatialtemporal drug distribution within one or more brain units, which are cubic representations of a piece of brain tissue with brain capillaries at the edges.

Boethius and the Importance of Basic Logic and Mathematics for Philosophy
In this dissertation, Boethius’ mathematics and logic and their roles in philosophy are reassessed, and on the basis of these, the connections between mathematics and logic in Boethius and their applications to theological or philosophical topics are explored.

Mathematical modeling of cellular stress pathways for mechanistic understanding of chemicalinduced liver injury
Cellular stress response pathways are activated upon exposure to chemicals and help organisms deal with various molecular dangers (e.g. oxidative stress). When these pathways become hyperactivated an adverse response takes place and cells die, which may lead to organismlevel toxicity such as druginduced…

Improving the Minor in Teaching to increase the number of Mathematics and Science students enrolled in teacher education
The Minor in Teaching was introduced in 2009 as a new initiative to introduce and prepare bachelor students for teaching. Student numbers are low, however, especially of mathematics and science students.

Mathematics as weapon against desertification
PhD student Robbin Bastiaansen applies mathematics to get insight in practical problems. By comparing mathematical models with developments in existing ecosystems, he hopes to demystify the process of desertification. His research has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…
