Third Workshop on Soft Tissue Modelling

Third Workshop on Soft Tissue Modelling

School of Mathematics and Statistics

University of Glasgow

7th June 2017 - Friday 9th of June 2017 

One of the greatest challenges of mechanical modelling is to extend its success to fields outside traditional engineering, in particular to physiology, biomedical sciences, and medicine.  Following successful Soft Tissue Modelling Workshop in Glasgow during 2012 and 2015,  this third workshop will continue the research forum for modelling specialists and medical experts to discuss and exchange ideas on state-of-the-art developments and challenges in the field of soft tissue modelling, with particular applications to tissues in the cardiovascular system and tissues affected by cancer.

The workshop is organized and partly sponsored by SofTMech, an EPSRC-funded Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Healthcare.
