EPSRC Centre for Mathematics of Precision Healthcare

EPSRC and Imperial College logosPrecision healthcare seeks to deploy therapies that are sensitive to the particular genetic, lifestyle and environmental circumstances of each patient. Understanding how best to use these numerous features about each patient is a true mathematical challenge.

The EPSRC Centre for Mathematics of Precision Healthcare at Imperial will serve as a focal point by linking up mathematical, computational and medical capabilities at Imperial around the theme of multi-scale networks for data-rich precision healthcare.  

Medicine is undergoing a simultaneous shift at the levels of the individual and the population: we have unprecedented tools for precision monitoring and intervention in individual health, and we also have high-resolution behavioural and social data.
