Computational Medicine: Integrating computational research and ICT Tools for better health care

Organised by LMTC, LICT, BioSCENTer, the IBBT Future Health Department and Leuven.Inc

Theme and scope

How can mathematics, engineering and computational science be applied for understanding the mechanisms behind, and improving the diagnosis and treatment of human disease? This is the baseline of the computational medicine symposium that aims to bring together scientists from medical as well as engineering disciplines to present current research in this multi-disciplinary field at the K.U.Leuven.

As part of our commitment to innovation and interregional development, a business track organized by Leuven.Inc is integrated into the program. Company representatives will participate in round table discussions with presenters and other delegates.
