About this event

An exciting showcase and future directions event from the EPSRC Liverpool Centre for Mathematics in Healthcare (LCMH), established in 2015 at the University of Liverpool in partnership with Lancaster University and Liverpool John Moores University. The programme brings together academic researchers, clinicians and industry to share latest research findings and celebrate how multidisciplinary research is making a difference to the healthcare sector. It is also an opportunity to identify potential new collaborations in the context of emerging challenges and opportunities for the next generation of mathematics-related research for healthcare.

Please contact c.bee@liverpool.ac.uk or lcmh@liverpool.ac.uk with any queries.

The event will be held online (Zoom link to follow) and attendance is free of charge.
