Victor Pérez García

The fight against disease is one of the greatest challenges in modern society. Mathematics has contributed substantially to the development of many disciplines, such as Physics and Engineering. Life Sciences, and specifically Medicine, are, however, perceived as ‘different’, because of the complexity of life itself. 

In this talk I shall discuss how Mathematics may lead to important breakthroughs in the fight against disease, and what advances are to be expected in the coming decades. I will describe examples involving brain tumors where Applied Mathematics is being used to improve our knowledge and clinical practice well beyond the current standard.
