Systems Medcine: Mathematical & Computational Biology

When: Hilary Term

Duration: SysBio - five weeks, SABS - four weeks

Synopsis: This course will provide an introduction to the theoretical approaches used to model complex systems in health and disease. The main focus will be on understanding how mathematical and computational models are developed, the techniques that are used for their solution, and interpreting results.

Intended Learning Outcomes: The students will understand how to develop and analyse, and implement numerically, ordinary and partial differential equation models, and stochastic models, of key biological processes.

Pre-Requisites: None.
