  • John J. Tyson (born December 12, 1947, in Abington, Pennsylvania) is an American systems biologist and mathematical biologist who serves as University Distinguished Professor of Biology at Virginia Tech,and is the former president of the Society for Mathematical Biology. He is known for his research on biochemical switches in the cell cycle, dynamics of biological networks and on excitable media. Tyson earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Wheaton College, and received his Ph.D in chemical physics from the University of Chicago. After postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, a temporary position teaching mathematics at the University at Buffalo, and another post doctorate at the University of Innsbruck for Biochemistry and Experimental Cancer Research, he joined the Virginia Tech faculty in 1978 and is currently a University Distinguished Professor in Biological Sciences. He was president of the Society for Mathematical Biology for 1993–1995, and served as co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Theoretical Biology from 1995 to 2004. (en)
