The University of Liverpool has established a new £6M Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Healthcare to develop novel mathematical tools that address serious healthcare challenges.
The new Centre, supported by £2.4M from the Engineering Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), is carrying out multidisciplinary research to explore how mathematics and statistics can deliver a more refined and accurate set of predictive models and tools for personalised healthcare delivery.
The EPSRC Liverpool Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Healthcare brings together collaborating mathematicians, scientists, engineers and clinicians at the Universities of Liverpool and Lancaster with industrial partners and policy makers who will interact more widely with 15 other UK universities and 40 NHS trusts.
This centre is one of 5 funded by EPSRC. The other 4 are:
- EPSRC Centre for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Multimodal Clinical Imaging, Cambridge University
- EPSRC Centre for Predictive Modelling in Healthcare, Exeter University
- EPSRC Centre for Multiscale Soft Tissue Mechanics, University of Glasgow
- EPSRC Centre for Mathematics of Precision Healthcare, Imperial College, London
