We are pleased to announce the seventh Mathematics in Life Sciences (MiLS) meeting. You can read more about MiLS here and here and you can subscribe to our low-traffic newsletter here.
The meeting, co-organised by Rüdiger Thul, will focus on "Spatial cell signalling" and will take place on the 30th of May 2018 from 10:30am to 5:00pm, in Room A39 of the Sir Clive Granger Building, at the University of Nottingham (University Park Campus). The Sir Clive Granger Building is number 16 on this map. Directions to the University Park Campus (including cycling facilities, bicycle routes, bus and tram lines) can be found here.
Financial support for the meeting is also provided by the UK Multiscale Biology network
We look forward to welcoming you in Nottingham.
