The Karl-Peter Hadeler Prize

KPHThe Karl-Peter Hadeler Prize of the Journal of Mathematical Biology (JoMB) recognizes outstanding publications in the journal.

K.P.Hadeler (1936-2017) was a pioneer in mathematical biology. He co-founded  the Journal of Mathematical Biology (1974) and the European Society of Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (1991), and was the leading editor for JoMB for many years.

His lifelong passion for mathematical biology was driven by his love of mathematics and biology alike. He saw that mathematical modeling can help understand biological processes on a deep level, identify new structures, generate new insights, and even inspire new mathematics. It is in this vision that we recognize the outstanding research published in JoMB every year.
