School Colloquium Series: Professor Tiina Roose

Professor Tiina Roose, University of Southampton

Tyndall Lecture Theatre

Title: Multiscale Image Based Modelling in Biology

In this talk I will describe a state of the art image based modelling in several seemingly different areas of biology. I show examples from biomedical (lymphatic, vascular and lung system) and agricultural problems of plant soil interaction. I will describe the workflow from imaging (X-ray CT, XRF, SEM-EDX, histology), image reconstruction, image segmentation, computation and how to utilize this work stream to synthesise new scientific knowledge. In particular I will also outline several challenges and bottle necks in this process to hopefully encourage more mathematicians to get involved in the full pipeline.

The talk is open to University of Bristol staff and students.
