North West Festival of Women in Mathematics - "Mathematics in Healthcare"Online
The North West Festival of Women in Mathematics is open to all KS4 and KS5 students of Mathematics (some sessions are only open to KS5 due to their content) but we would particularly like to encourage female students who might be considering studying Mathematics or a STEM subject at A Level or University. There are a number of online workshops over three weeks given by research mathematicians at various career stages.
In all of the sessions the host will introduce herself and give a brief biography of her career and research and there will be time for questions and answers at the end of the session.
Here is a table of all of the sessions. You will need to register to attend any sessions individually

Who will benefit from attending?
This session is open to KS4 and KS5 maths students (and teachers). We would particularly like to encourage female students who might be considering studying Mathematics or a STEM subject post-16 or at University.
Professor Shipley is Director of the UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Vice Dean for Health within the UCL Faculty of Engineering Sciences. Her research interests lie in mathematical and computational modelling in medicine and biology, including cancer, tissue engineering and human physiology. Most recently, she has been one of the leaders of the UCL-Ventura initiative to manufacture CPAP breathing aids at scale to help keep Covid-19 patients from needing intensive care. She is active in bringing mathematics and engineering to the wider public.
