Bioethics Lunch – Mathematical Biology

DATE: Thursday, March 14, 2019 TIME: 12:00 pm—1:30 pm LOCATION: NCRC, B10 G065

BIONIC and Dr. Barry Belmont invite you to join us for our March Bioethics lunch!  In celebration of Pi Day, this ethical lunch will be focused on the role of mathematics in biology and medicine. To what extent should mathematical models be relied upon to make treatment decisions? Are artificial intelligences the future doctors? If a physician follows the treatment recommendation of an algorithm but the patient suffers, who is to blame – the physician or the maker of the algorithm? Please join us for free lunch and insightful discussion!

For this discussion, we are very excited to welcome Dr. Indika Rajapakse – Associate Professor of Computational Medicine & Bioinformatics, and Mathematics. Dr. Rajapakse leads a research group focused on the dynamics of genome organization in human cells. The goal if his work is to build a deeper understanding of how the cell cycle guides cell fate determination. Dr. Rajapakse is sure to illuminate the beauty of the interplay of mathematics, biology, and medicine, and spark stimulating conversation!
