£10 million for new math centers to tackle life-threatening diseases

(Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) Life Sciences Minister George Freeman today announced £10 million investment in five new research centers around the UK that will explore how mathematics and statistics can help clinicians to tackle serious health challenges such as cancer, heart disease and antibiotic resistant bacteria.Located at universities in Liverpool, Glasgow, London, Cambridge and Exeter, researchers at the centers will develop new tools from predictive mathematical models to enable earlier diagnosis of chronic diseases such as epilepsy.
