Mathematical Modeling as a Virtual Laboratory In Life Sciences

Date: 
Tuesday, April 28, 2020 - 12:00pm
Location: 
Zoom meeting
Speaker: 
Dr. Giovanna Guidoboni
(MU Math, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science)

Mathematics has been the language of physics and engineering for centuries.
The functional and structural complexity of living organisms, though, is much
higher than that of a house or a car, and this left mathematical methods outside
the mainstream approaches in bio-applications. Nevertheless, joining forces
across disciplines, including mathematics, may be the key to expedite solutions
to many outstanding problems in the life sciences. As an example, this talk will
describe how mathematically-based interdisciplinary approaches are leading to
breakthroughs in cardiology and ophthalmology.
**All are welcome**
