Event description

Description

The University of Sheffield, Department of Computer Science is pleased to announce the following Inaugural lecture by Professor Richard Clayton.

Title: The beat goes on... How computer models help us understand how our hearts beat.

Abstract: Each time our heart beats, an extraordinary sequence of events takes place at spatial scales ranging from single molecules right up to the whole organ. These intricate mechanisms continue to work reliably throughout our lifetimes. So what are they? What can go wrong? And what have computers got to do with it all? In this lecture I will address these questions, and show how an engineering mindset can not only shed light on the way that biological systems behave, but also pose some important scientific questions about the nature of living things.

The lecture will commence at 5pm, followed by a reception at 6pm.
