The field of computational biology has seen dramatic growth over the past few years. The significant advances in computing power are now being used to conduct data analytics, mathematical modelling and computational simulation, for an ever-increasingly diverse set of problems. With applications in genomics, neuroscience and medicine, we look to gain an understanding of its future implications with the emergence of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and how this will disrupt and revolutionise both medicine and healthcare.
In this talk participants will learn how they can spin out their research into a biotech company without having to leave their academic research behind.
Professor Hans Stauss, Director, Institute of Immunity and Transplantation, UCL.
Professor Hans Stauss was an early trail blazer in the field of cancer immunotherapy demonstrating how modified T cells could be used to effectively target tumours. Recognising the medical potential of this research Hans was involved in setting up Cell Medica which is now advancing an impressive pallet of innovative proprietary technologies in the field of immune cell therapy for cancer and viral infections. Meanwhile Hans continues to turn out cutting edge research and is involved in a number of clinical trials.
