Introduction to Mathematical and Computational Modelling: from mouse to computer and back
The training school provides an introduction to mathematical and computational modelling for scientists that work with animal models of disease. The training school aims to show how such techniques can contribute to biomedical research, in particular to integrate data and knowledge and facilitate translation of preclinical findings. It will also discussed how experiments are tailored to deliver data that is amenable for computation, and how modelling provides predictions and hypotheses as input for further experimental work. The participants will be exposed to some of the underlying mathematics, but the main focus will be on concepts and principles. The program is composed of lectures, hands-on computer practicals and research presentations. Computers with software are available.
