This special issue of Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering contains selected papers which were presented at the US-SA Workshop on ``Mathematical Methods in Systems Biology and Population Dynamics'' held at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in Muizenberg, South Africa, January 4-7, 2012. The workshop was originally planned as a small US-SA meeting, but with the growing interest of participants from other countries, we ended up with about 60 participants representing 16 countries from Europe, Africa and even Asia and Australia. Topics addressed at the workshop included the spread of infectious diseases and the growing need for robust and reliable models in ecology, both of special importance in the host country of South Africa where research naturally has been focused on fighting disease and epidemics like HIV/AIDS, malaria and others. In the US, on the other hand, a strong emphasis exists on systems biology and on its aspects related to cancer. Therefore, a second focus area of the workshop was on improved and more realistic models for the dynamic progression and treatment of various types of cancer, a truly globally challenging problem. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the sponsors: the National Science Foundation and the Society for Mathematical Biology from the US side, the National Research Foundation of South Africa with institutional support of AIMS, the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville for making this event possible.
