Event Date/Time: Jun 10, 2010
End Date/Time: Jun 12, 2010
This workshop will bring together mathematicians, statisticians, modellers, biologists, epidemiologists, engineers, physicians, computer scientists, public health officials and others who are interested in sharing views and experiences on the use of mathematics in a broad variety of medical areas. The goal is not to present highly technical papers. Instead, participants will step back from their day-to-day activities and reflect on the impact of their research: how and to what extent do mathematical results "trickle down" to the front lines of the fight against disease and make a real difference to the "end-users" and their patients? (for example through tangible benefits of improved cancer therapies or positive global health effects of infectious disease modeling). Medical imaging, cardiology, oncology, pharmacology, epidemiology and other fields of medicine benefit from the use of mathematical/statistical methods and will be represented at the workshop. English will be the working language.
