Programme - MiLS meeting on Inverse problems in biology and neuroscience

We are pleased to confirm the programme for the eleventh Mathematics in Life Sciences (MiLS) meeting.

The meeting will focus on "Inverse problems in biology and neuroscience" and will take place on the 5th December 2019 from 10:30am to 5:30pm, in Room A05 of the Pharmacy Building, at the University of Nottingham (University Park Campus). The Pharmacy Building is number 26 on this map. Directions to the University Park Campus (including cycling facilities, bicycle routes, bus and tram lines) can be found here.
