The KTH Life Science Day 2022 will feature scientific talks and a keynote address by Professor Madan Rao followed by an opportunity for networking and collaboration. Photo: Istock

KTH Life Science Platform organises an annual event where we bring together KTH researchers working in the broad area of life sciences. This year, we have invited colleagues using both bottom-up computational models of biological systems and high-level data-driven models. The goal is to highlight that computational/mathematical modelling is crucial for causal inference in biological systems and that models should form a part of the data analysis pipelines for biology.

Time: Mon 2022-11-28 13.00 - 18.00

Location: KTH Campus, Digital Futures, Osquars Backe 5, floor 2

Language: English

Lecturer: Several

Like previous years, the event will feature five scientific talks and a keynote address, this year by Professor Madan Rao. The talks will be followed by mingling with light food/drinks, which will provide an opportunity for networking and collaboration.
