There will be seven termly biosciences colloquia, held in the Mathematical Institute, with speakers from within Oxford chosen to span the network’s application areas. Each colloquium will have a presentation by a junior and a senior researcher. The talks will be followed by a drinks reception providing opportunities for participants to network, and once per year there will also be a poster session (with a prize for the best poster).
There will be three, one-day sandpit / brainstorming meetings with the aims to:
identify the big questions for the next ten years
identify current bottlenecks obstructing major progress
discuss model and data standards and, for example, the need for an Oxford-based repository for quantitative biosciences research
identify best (and worst) practice in the interdisciplinary biosciences
develop the structure of grant applications, and identify network members who could review
