The 23rd J-BJI Talk


Time14th May 7pm—830pm  

VenueLibrary Lecture Hall in Panyu Campus  

TopicResearch and Application of Medical Science and Cross-link Disciplines 

SpeakerDr. Alex Conner

 

Abstract:

  

The College of Medical and Dental Sciences of the University of Birmingham provides a wide range of world class Post-Graduate Research and Teaching programmes in medical and health sciences. Among all, Bioinformatics, Health Economics and Econometrics, and Health Research Methods are three of the most popular emerging disciplines where mathematics, statistics, computer, economics and biomedicine are cross-link, which become more and more significant in public and private health care sector. These programmes could be one of the potential pathways for our students in Jinan University- University of Birmingham, who are equipped with solid mathematical foundation and hoping to pursue a career in health economics or public health.

 

In this talk, Dr Conner, with his reputation as a biochemist of brain proteins (aquaporins), will explain the main research themes of the College and the application of these programme in the industry. Nevertheless, how these may be favorable to our students’ progression planning.
