Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
Medicine has advanced far past the practical knowledge of how to set bones and when to administer vaccines. The sheer volume of scientific data and immense complexity of biomedical research means that math is an essential tool driving medical science forward.
Dr Denise Kirschner loves math, and is currently working on host-pathogen interactions in infectious diseases and will use tuberculosis as an example in this talk. She is a full Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor. She has instructed advanced mathematical courses and biomedical research courses. She is also Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Theoretical Biology and director for the Center of Systems Biology at the University of Michigan. She has authored over 100 research papers and manages her research lab at UofM.
