Research Experience for Undergraduates:
Prior Research Interests::Improperly posed problems, systems of
reaction-diffusion equations, nonlinear wave equations.
Current Research Interests:Mathematical modelling of tumor driven
angiogenesis. This work was supported by the National Science Foundation Program
in Applied Mathematics Grant #DMS 9803992. My coauthors were Professor Brian
Sleeman of the University of Leeds, and Professor Marit Nilsen-Hamilton of the
Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology at Iowa State are
my principal collaborators on this project. Sleeman is supported as a consultant
on the grant. The computations were done by S. Pamuk, a PhD student of mine.
Together with Mike Smiley and Anna Tucker, Prof. Nilsen-Hamilton and I have
extended these ideas to the so called "p53-switch" in which loss of the wild
type p-53 function leads to uncontroled or excess growth factor
expression. Professor Nilsen-Hamilton, K. Boushaba and I have
recently modeled the control of secondary tumors by primary tumors.
Let me show you a picture of my
family.Here is my son
Joe. (Here is a second picture.) He graduated with a
BS in biochemistry in May,1999, from the University of Iowa, the branch campus of
Iowa State University, in Iowa City. He was
employed by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in Groton, Connecticut for two years and an
MD at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
Here is a picture of him with his
bride Marina (nee'
Abromovich), who was a classmate of his at Minnesota. Here they are again, the
"the Drs. Levine".
He is currently a medical fellow in hematology and oncology at
the University of Minnesota while she is a radiology fellow
This is my daughter
Margo. (Here is a second picture.) She is a
graduate of Cornell University where she studied civil engineering and minored
in applied mathematics. You think an ISU education is expensive? Well, let me
tell you ..... She had an REU at the University of Alabama at Birmingam during the
summer of 2001. Here are some pictures of her lecturing on her research: REU Lecture, scene 1

She currently has an NIH Traineeship at Massachusetts General
Hospital She received a Murphy Fellowship to study applied
mathematics at Northwestern University
beginning Fall Quarter, 2002. She received her PhD at Northwestern University
in 2007. She recently
Jaramello, who was an undergrad at Cornell and a graduate student
in physics at the University of Chicago. He received his PhD in physics at Chicago and is an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University.
