2nd MathRad Clinical Workshop, 8 November 2023

Organisers: Sarah Osman, Ana Lourenco, Tristan Pryer and Colin Baker

Building on the success of the first MaThRad Clinical Workshop, we were delighted to host the second MaThRad Clinical Workshop on the 8 November 2023  at Bushy House, within the grounds of the National Physical Laboratory. 

This workshop was designed to stimulate and focus research, as well as identifying new  collaboration opportunities within MaThRad’s interdisciplinary community. We welcomed keynote talks from Sebastiaan Breedveld (Erasmus MC NL), Thyrza Jagt (NKI NL), Mikael Simard (UCL) and Tony Slaba (NASA Langley Research Centre) as well as recieved updates on research  which has been developed from the first workshop in February.
