Programme - MiLS Meeting on Multiscale modelling techniques and their applications in biology and medicine

The ninth Mathematics in Life Sciences (MiLS) meeting will focus on "Multiscale modelling techniques and their applications in biology and medicine”. This is the first meeting organised in collaboration with our new members,  Sarah Waters (University of Oxford), and  Alessia Annibale (King's College London). It will take place on the 2nd of April 2019 from 11am to 4pm, at the University of Oxford, in the Mathematical Institute.  The meeting is being co-funded by the Quantitative Biology in Oxford network.

Attendance to the meeting is free of charge, but we kindly ask you to register your intention to attend, by sending an email to Nicola Kirkham (Nicola [dot] Kirkham [at] maths [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk).

We are still inviting poster presentation at the meeting. If you would like to present a poster, please email Nicola Kirkham (Nicola [dot] Kirkham [at] maths [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk) with your title and short abstract.
