CERN openlab is organising this workshop as part of its ongoing knowledge-sharing activities with research communities beyond high-energy physics (HEP). The workshop will be a forum to share experience, challenges, and tools between the HEP and systems biology communities.

The event will focus in particular on technologies and approaches related to data-driven research, such as data analytics, machine learning, and distributed platforms for sharing, reproduction, etc. In addition to research, we will also discuss the role such technologies and approaches can play in education.

The morning is open to all; it will feature invited speakers from both the HEP and systems biology communities. The afternoon will be dedicated to identifying common objectives and opportunities for collaboration between the HEP and systems biology communities.

If you would like to attend the open sessions of the workshop in the morning, please register using the link on the left.

      Systems science for medicine; Synergy at the boundary between biology and physics 30m

      Medicine remains a qualitative discipline because we have not yet understood the fundamental physics governing biological systems. Current approaches have made huge headway, but lack cohesive frameworks capable of indexing and integrating detailed findings into quantitative frameworks assisting the promotion of health.

      In this lecture, I describe potential short-, intermediate-, and long-term projects, ending with a discussion of my current work on the biophysics of brain function.
