BIOREME (integrating data-driven BIOphysical modelling into REspiratory MEdicine) is an EPSRC-funded network of researchers, industry and patient representatives at the interface of mathematical modelling and respiratory medicine. Find out more at bioreme.net or e-mail contact@bioreme.net

The network are hosting a Research Sandpit on structure and function in airways disease.  This sandpit will bring together academic, clinical, industry and experts to explore the challenges and opportunities around the role of biophysical modelling in the understanding and treatment of airways diseases. Attendees will be eligible to apply for pump-prime funding (up to £10,000) to support project proposals generated at the event.

When and where
Session 1 (online): 2 – 5pm, 21st Sept
Session 2 (in-person) 9.30 – 5pm, 26th Sept, Imperial College London

Confirmed speakers
To prime discussion, the event will start with research talks from academic and clinical experts around two focus areas:
1. Multi-scale airways disease
Professor Salman Siddiqui, Imperial College London
Professor Bindi Brook, University of Nottingham
Professor Clare Lloyd, Imperial College London
2. Structure/function and personalised medicine
Professor Alex Horsley, University of Manchester
Professor Chantal Darquenne, University of California, San Diego

Who can participate?
We encourage a diverse range of expertise to attend including academic, industry, clinical and charity groups with expertise in mathematics, data science, imaging, biological sciences, engineering, as well as medical experts.
