I am member of the UNAM's Mathematical Biology Group. Every year, since 1999, we organize the Autumn School of Mathematical Biology; a nation-wide, growing-prestige meeting. The School is dedicated to a specific theme every year. Last year, for obvious reasons, it was devoted to Evolution, this year, it will focus its activities to Chemistry and Biochemistry.

The program will include keynote speakers, elementary and advanced courses on Chemistry and Biochemistry, posters sessions and submitted talks. The School will take place in the Mexican City of Saltillo, in the northern state of Coahuila the first week of November.
