CMALS Sandpit Day
Friday 9th January, 2015 Mathematics Building
The Centre for Mathematics Applied to Life Sciences (CMALS) held a one-day sandpit event in the School on Friday 9th January. The 25 participants, representing Glasgow, Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian Universities, studied two problems related to the treatment and diagnosis of cancer, one presented by Prof Robert Insall (Beatson Institute, GU) and the other by Dr Philip Riches (Department of Biomechanical Engineering, Strathclyde University). Through the day the participants constructed some preliminary mathematical models; these models will be developed over the coming months and hopefully form the basis of collaborative papers and grant proposals.
