IMSR Public Seminar with Dr Thomas Upton
- Friday 3 July 2020 (13:00-14:00)
Talk tile: Dynamic hormone diagnostics: Novel approaches and new insights
This talk is about hormone dynamics. Hormone physiology represents a state of dynamic equilibrium. This means that single time point measurements are often challenging or impossible to interpret. Recently we have developed a novel method that allows dynamical hormone changes to be captured without minimal disruption. Using mathematical modelling and machine learning techniques this dynamical data has the potential to provide significant new insights into the diagnosis and understanding of endocrine conditions.
