The workshop will be attended by Professor Roger Kamm, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who will be inputting his expertise in microfluidics, mechanobiology and computational modelling of cancers.

The workshop will begin with a session of short 10-minute talks presenting an overview of UCL’s research in this area. If you are interested in presenting at the workshop, please submit a short expression of interest to healthcare-eng@ucl.ac.uk by 11 January under the subject heading ‘Expression of interest for IHE/IPLS workshop’.

The workshop aims to build a multidisciplinary community to develop methods to map the mechanical, structural, chemical, cellular and genetic heterogeneity of tumours across scales. The IHE will be funding a PhD studentship related to activities around this workshop. There will also be discussion directly focused around the EPSRC call ‘Building Collaboration at the Physics of Life Interface’ for a cancer mechanobiology proposal.

The workshop will be followed by a keynote talk by Professor Kamm as part of the IHE Colloquium Series and networking drinks – open to all.
