Overview

Computer models are increasingly used to understand the fundamentals of biological systems. Researchers in academic institutions as well as the pharmaceutical industry use mathematical models to generate hypotheses on how complex biomolecular systems work. Modelling of biochemical pathways deregulated in disease condition offers mechanistic insights into the pathology, helps to elucidate mechanisms behind drug action and predict the dose required for treatment thus facilitating fundamental research and drug discovery.

This course will provide participants with an introduction to network analysis as well as modelling resources, tools and approaches used in systems biology. It will combine lectures, hands-on computational practical sessions and group projects.

The course programme is currently under development. Once it is confirmed we will post it here along with details on how to apply and registration costs. If you would like to be informed when applications open for this course then please click on the “Register your interest” button above.
