Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Dynamics and Data Assimilation, Physiology and Bioinformatics: Mathematics at the Interface of Theory and Clinical Application" workshop in Banff from May 29 to June 3, 2022.


Personalized predictive medicine has the potential to transform the treatment landscape. Breakthroughs will require advanced mathematical ideas, deep understanding of human physiology, and the ability to harness the power of an ever-growing sea of clinical data. This workshop draws together a scientifically diverse team of international researchers from pure and applied mathematics, bioengineering, mathematical physiology, computer science, biomedical informatics, nutrition science, and medicine. We will forge new collaborations and strengthen existing partnerships in an effort to transform expertise in mathematics, data science, and biomedicine into personalized predictive medicine, deeper physiologic understanding, and new mathematics.


The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides 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 is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and 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).
