Event description

Description

This workshop brings together a range of scientists from the University of Manchester to present their respiratory-related research, with a focus on applications of modelling and imaging. This is an opportunity for academics, clinicians and researchers based at hte Wythenshawe hospital to hear about exciting new techniques in these fields and to establish new interdisciplinary collaborations. The schedule includes researchers from Mathematics, Physics, Cardiovascular Sciences, and Imaging, Informatics and Data science. Lunch and coffee is included in the free registration.

If you cannot make the whole event, feel free to drop in for the talks that interest you, the schedule for the day is as follows:

Imaging and image analysis:

11:40 - 12:10 -- Dr Jo Naish: Imaging lung structure and function with proton MRI.

12:10 - 12:40 -- Dr Claudia Lindner: Lessons from musculoskeletal research: developing software for clinical applications.

12:40 - 13:30 -- Lunch and discussion

Physiological modelling & imaging:

13:30 - 14:00 -- Dr Igor Chernyavsky: Modelling transport processes in complex soft tissues: a case of the human placenta and the lung.

14:00 - 14:30 -- Dr Carl Whitfield: Patient-specific simulations of breathing.

14:30 - 15:00 -- Prof Henggui Zhang: Physical mechanisms of pulmonary hypertension.

15:00 - 15:30 -- Coffee break and discussion

Public health modelling from clinical data:

15:30 - 16:00 -- Dr Ian Hall: Modelling the spread of infections with clinical data and respiratory modelling.
