Interface: science + art + health

Thursday 4 March 2021 (19:00-21:00)

In 2020 the Centre for Systems Modelling & Quantitative Biomedicine (SMQB) and the EPSRC Centre for Predictive Modelling in Healthcare embarked on a new Artist-in-Residence programme. Four multidisciplinary artists joined forces with researchers and clinicians working at the interface between mathematics, biology and healthcare.

Together, and despite the pandemic challenges of the past year, they have co-crafted new artistic works that respond to contemporary research through creative practice.

INTERFACE brings together their artist residency stories for an informal evening of sharing and conversation around science + art + health. All welcome!


In the first hour: Artist Talks + Artworks

Our four artist-researcher pairs will talk for 15 minutes each. Each artist will also show examples of the work they have created and talk through the creative process.

In the second hour: Audience Discussion

All collaborating pairs will take part in a panel discussion driven by audience questions. You may submit a question as part of registering or live on the day. Chaired by Professor John Terry, Director of the SMQB.

Background to the SMQB

SMQB are a group of research innovators with backgrounds in mathematics, computer science, physics and biomedicine. We are passionate about delivering transformative research that impacts upon lives, through contributing measurable advances to healthcare and medicine. Crucially, this is informed and co-created with a range of stakeholders, including biomedical researchers, clinical scientists, members of the public and industry partners.
