One will rarely find a job listing from a biomedical company
directly asking for a mathematician. Yet many biomedical
applications
ranging from research to manufacturing require a mathematical
aptitude.
The restrictions imposed by physical, clinical and human
factors call
for mathematical solutions to be as simple as possible. I
will give a
brief background introduction to the applications and
describe several
problems in no mathematical depth whatsoever.
