Multilevel Dynamics of Human and Animal Sleep: Mathematical Models Meet Data

30 March 2020 - 31 March 2020


Venue: Innovation for Health Building, University of Surrey 


This interdisciplinary workshop features leading international experts in sleep and circadian rhythms, mathematical modelling and data analytics


Mathematical models have been very successful at explaining different aspects of the sleep and circadian system but with greater understanding of regulatory mechanisms coming from transcriptomics, genomics, metabolomics, the proliferation of data from wearables, new EEG methods and new light sensors, there is considerable opportunity to make mathematical models that are more predictive, that include differences in genotype, physiology and environment and describe individual differences in phenotype. 


The primary aim of the meeting is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration, connecting those with data to those who build mathematical models and develop analysis tools.
