Introduction to Mathematical and Computational Modelling: from mouse to computer and back

  • Other
Tuesday 17 January 2017 to Thursday 19 January 2017
Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, the Netherlands

The training course aims to provide 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.  

A detailed programme of the sessions is available online.

Cost and travel information
A bursary of 780 EURO will be available to participants as a contribution to the cost of travel, accommodation and meal expenses incurred. Accommodation for the training school will be available at the Crown Inn hotel at a cost of 73.50 EURO per night for a single room, breakfast and city tax included. Eindhoven airport is serviced by several low cost airlines and Amsterdam airport (Schiphol) is 1 hour 30 minutes away by direct train.
