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.
