Venn Lecture 2017
Can mathematics really help us in our fight against disease?
That's the question that will be examined in this year's annual Venn Lecture at the University of Hull.
Dr Julia Gog, from the University of Cambridge, will explore some exciting current research areas, where mathematics is being used to study pandemics, viruses and everything in between, with a particular focus on influenza.
The lecture is being held on Thursday, March 23 at 6pm. The venue is Lecture Theatre 29 in the Wilberforce Building on the University of Hull campus.
The annual Venn Lecture is a free public lecture in mathematics held at the University of Hull. These accessible lectures are aimed at upper secondary school pupils and anyone who is interested in mathematics and its applications. The lectures are named in honour of Hull-born mathematician John Venn, best known for Venn Diagrams, which pictorially represent the relations between sets.
Dr Gog is a Reader in Mathematical Biology in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.
