Title: Mathematics In Medicine

Description: Prof. Canic will discuss how real-life problems are an important driving force in the development of new mathematics. With the recent developments of new technologies, biomedical engineering and medicine, the need for new mathematical and numerical methodologies to aid these developments has never been greater. Real-life problems and how math has influenced the development of breakthrough technologies to solve them: One is the development of vascular prosthesis called stents, and the other is the design of bioartificial pancreas for the treatment of Type 1 diabetes.
