This continuation deals with the bioconvection flow of magnetized Maxwell nanofluid over a stretched cylinder in presence of slip effects. The novel features of activation energy and thermal radiation are also encountered to analyze the flow. The higher order slip relations are introduced to inspect the thermal flow problem. The flow model is developed in terms of dimensionless equations via appropriate variables. The numerical simulations are presented with shooting scheme by using MATLAB software. The physical outcomes of interesting parameters are visualized. The observations show that velocity profile reduces with unsteady parameter, curvature constant and second order slip factor. The temperature profile enhanced with first order velocity slip parameter and curvature constant. Moreover, nanofluid concentration reduces with Lewis number and Brownian constant.
