Biomathematics Seminar: Modelling Matters in Medicine and Biology

Presented by Helen Byrne, University of Nottingham

10 December 2010 15:15 in Mathematical Sciences, CM107


When tackling a new problem, it may be difficult to know what modelling framework to use and how this choice influences the insight that the model can generate. In this talk, I will demonstrate the importance of these issues by discussing case studies relating to i) the growth of tumour spheroids, ii) diurnal variation in the length of a class of retinal cells and iii) normal and pathological ageing of cells.
