Event details

Join us on 22 July for the first Mathematics and Life Sciences Seminar session

The general aim of these sessions is to break down the communication barrier, and to encourage the exchange of ideas, between Mathematics and Biomedicine, initially in the context of topological data analysis in proteomics. The proposed format for these sessions is two 20-minute talks, one from each side of University Road, plus informal discussion time over tea/coffee, which may lead to further discussion over drinks at a local pub.

The talks will be on current research interests, from general overviews of particular research themes to research papers of interest. University staff travelling between Southampton General Hospital and Highfield Campus should get in touch for assistance regarding travel costs between campuses.

For our first session, we have two presentations:
Ruben Sanchez-Garcia - "Introduction to Topological Data Analysis"
Dom Burg - "Unbiased Disease Stratification within the IMI U-BIOPRED Severe Asthma Programme Using Topological Data Mining"

These seminar sessions will complement the ongoing Bioinformatics Journal Club (contact or for further details), and they will naturally lead up to the forthcoming Southampton Workshop on Data Analysis (to be announced shortly).

This initiative is supported by a Faculty Strategic Interdisciplinary Research Development Fund grant.
