As wet lab methods generate increasing amounts of spatial data, the extraction of biologically and clinically-relevant information is limited by our ability to analyse them. This symposium brought together scientists across the Oxford Cancer network with different expertise to discuss novel techniques and how to apply them to cancer research.
Presentations and flash talks were given on the following topics:
- Spatial Statistics and Topological Data Analysis (Joshua Bull, Heather Harrington)
- Modelling (Ruth Baker, Eamonn Gaffney),
- AI and Networks (Jens Rittscher)
- The intersection of statistics, mathematics and biology (Simon Leedham, Ling-Pei Ho).
The keynote address was given by Prof Philip Maini, who discussed the historical role that mathematics have played in accelerating our biological understanding.
