Study Group Format
The format of the Study Group was based on that successfully developed in the Study Groups with Industry, to which problems are brought by industrial workers whose mathematical training varies widely. The problems to be brought were discussed with the organisers prior to the meeting to ensure that they are suitable for mathematical study. It is hoped that the resolution of many of the problems brought to the Study Groups will lead to journal publications and foster longer-term multi-disciplinary collaborations between mathematical and biomedical researchers.
We gratefully acknowledge funding from the EPSRC and the London Mathematical Society. The Study Group is one of the activities being organised by the Network in Mathematical Medicine which the EPSRC is funding under its Life Sciences Initiative. In addition, the LMS have provided a grant to fund four young researchers to attend the Study Group.
