Modelling and Computation in Biology and Medicine
Various speakers: View full programme
Current experimental technologies in biology and medicine are able to generate increasingly large and complex data sets that are often very hard to interpret. Although assisted by establishment of fields such as translational bioinformatics, the integration of data from multiple sources is becoming an ever more crucial and challenging step in extracting full scientific value from the massive amounts of molecular and clinical data being generated. If biology and medicine are to keep pace with the development of data-generating technologies, it is essential that innovative computational and modelling approaches are developed to quantify and rationalise relevant information in such complex data sets. Such approaches will be critical for us to gain the increased understanding of the molecular basis of disease that will inform and transform clinical practice, design of new therapies, and ultimately improve human health. The development of these innovative approaches for exploiting complex data sets is, in turn, increasingly dependent on effective collaboration between computational biologists, mathematicians, theoreticians, modelers and laboratory-based scientists and/or clinicians.
This Crick-sponsored workshop will bring together scientists who are interested in quantitative and computation‑based methodologies, with those who generate the data and have the biological and medical knowledge. We aim to stimulate cross-disciplinary discussion, learning and debate on the possible directions and progress of this area of research, which has enormous potential to provide novel insights into fundamental biological questions.
