LMS Research School: Mathematics of Multiscale Biology

Monday, July 2, 2018 (All day) to Friday, July 6, 2018 (All day)

Biological systems often involve inextricably linked spatial and temporal scales. This multi-scale nature has entailed various mathematical developments, which constitute the theme of this Research School. Both theoretical and computational aspects will be covered in lectures and practical sessions on computers.

University of Nottinhgam
School of Mathematical Sciences, Mathematical Sciences Building
University Park
United Kingdom

The three main lecture course topics are:

1. Mathematics of microscopic biological systems (Professor Nick Monk (Sheffield))

2. Mathematics of macroscopic (super-cellular) biological systems

3. Mathematics across biological scales

The last two topics will be covered by Dr Bindi Brook, Dr Etienne Farcot, Professor John King, Dr Reuben O’Dea, Professor Markus Owen (Nottingham)

These lecture courses will be supplemented by practical sessions and two guest lectures:

· Multiscale organization of human genome. Annick Lesne (Laboratoire de Physique Théorique (Paris) and Institut de Génétique Moléculaire (Montpellier)).

· Addressing spatial disorder in multiscale physiological models. Oliver Jensen (Manchester).
