Event description

Description

There will be a one-day workshop on Friday 24th November 2017 with presentations covering the applications of mathematical modelling in the areas of mathematical biology and medicine (interpreted in a broad sense). Non-mathematical presentations discussing experimental science are also highly encouraged.

The keynote speakers are:

A/Prof. Adelle Coster (University of New South Wales): "Designing quantitative descriptions for biology: processes in insulin control of glucose transport in space and time".

A/Prof. Jeremy Crook (University of Wollongong): "Bioengineering 3D Models of the Brain".

Dr. Roger Bourne (The University of Sydney): "What makes a good model? Getting the most out of magnetic resonance imaging".

Supporting presentations will be given by students and early career researchers. If you woud like to give a presentation, please contact one of the organisers.

Presentations will aimed at a `general audience'. Emphasis should be placed on the problem being in investigate and the insights that mathematical modelling provides. Speakers are encouraged to avoid the gory mathematical details!

Titles of contributed talks:

* Segmentation of lung lesions on 4D-PET/CT images for radiation therapy treatment planning
* Is decreasing fertility a result of changes in societal inequality?
* Computational model of an initial lymphatic network
* Mathematical models of metabolism and body weight change
* A two-phase model of fibrous cap formation in atherosclerosis
* Modelling the impact of T-cell avidity on cancer vaccines
* Do T cells compete for antigen?
* Mathematical models for checkpoint blockade therapy in cancer treatments
* How does the outcome of cancer treatment depend on tumour geometry?
* Spatial and temporal variation of particle number in an urban-coastal environment
* Forensic Human Identification: Using mathematical modelling to evaluate the face of the Belanglo 'Angel'
* A method of QTL analysis utilising spatial models for marker effects
* Modelling the spread of smoking as an infectious disease

Morning and afternoon tea will be provided for all delegates. Lunch will be provided for the speakers. RSVP for catering purposes. Please advise of any dietary requirements.
