PIMS - SFU Distinguished Lecture in Applied & Computational Mathematics: Anita Layton

  • Date: 01/31/2020
  • Time: 03:30
Lecturer(s):
Anita Layton, UWaterloo
Location: 

Simon Fraser University

Topic: 

Mathematical Models and Their Applications in Diabetes, Hypertension, and Autism

Description: 

Computational modelling can be used to reveal insights into the mechanisms of new drugs and to develop new diagnostic tools. Here I will discuss three major diseases: diabetes, hypertension, and autism. I will talk about how we construct models to simulate new diabetes drugs, to understand sex differences in hypertension, and to develop a new approach for diagnosing autism in children.
