The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Recent Developments in Mathematical and Computational Biomedicine" workshop in Oaxaca, from November 3 to November 8, 2019.

Increasingly powerful technologies such as high-throughput sequencing, ‘multi-omics’, chromosome capture, supercomputing, high resolution microscopy and imaging, are providing components of personalised data from the subcellular to organ level at rates that were undreamt of even ten years ago. Mathematical modelling, simulations, and statistical analysis attempts to make sense of this data, and integrate it into multi-scale models that are increasingly used in health care settings. Likewise, mathematical and computational approaches provide cost-effective tools that mitigate the expense and ethical considerations of experimentation.  This workshop intends to bring together experts in a variety of areas within mathematical and computational sciences, medicine and biomedical informatics, to integrate expert knowledge and set a forum for interdisciplinary personalised medicine research for the 21st century.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
