Innovations in Healthcare Conference 2015

Location: The Octagon, The University of Sheffield, Western Bank, Sheffield, S10 2TN
Date: 13th July 2015 9:30pm – 4pm

Now in its 5th year, Innovations in Healthcare aims to build on previous successes, bringing together individuals from across the healthcare sector to see why The University of Sheffield is at the forefront of healthcare research and to discuss potential research collaborations.

Last year saw over 300 delegates register from 160 companies, both large and small, looking to learn more about research at The University of Sheffield through presentations, exhibitions and 1:1 networking, and we are delighted to say that we will be demonstrating at the event. Come down and see our exhibition!

York Computational Immunology Lab Inaugural International Meeting

Computational and Mathematical Approaches to Immunological Challenges

Date: Monday 3rd November – Tuesday 4th November 2014

Venue: Bedern Hall, York

Professor Mike Holcombe will be attending the Computational Immunology Lab on the 3rd – 4th November.

Bringing together world leading researchers to discuss the application of computational and mathematical approaches to assist with key immunological challenges. Delegates will consider how we can maximise the potential of computational and mathematical approaches, the role of these approaches in drug discovery, and current methods tools and techniques available to generate novel biological insights from models.  The Wellcome-Trust funded Centre for Chronic Diseases and Disorders at the University of York for funding this meeting. Attendance is by invitation only.

When two leading infrastructure and transport companies – Costain and Thameslink wanted to be sure their designs for major London railway stations would maximise pedestrian flow and passenger comfort, they turned to a team of computer scientists at the University of Sheffield.

An extract from a historic article back in August 2013 in the Universities Discover Magazine.

Professor Mike Holcombe talks about our simulation modelling, smart cities and big data in healthcare. We are indeed still working alongside infrastructure companies to model the behaviour of crowds within environments, enabling designers and decision makers to look at their ideas to help reduce the risk of unwanted situations occurring.
