Computational Biology Group

The Computational Biology Group, led by Professor David Gavaghan, is an interdisciplinary group based within the Department of Computer Science. The group engages in theoretical and applied, interdisciplinary and practise-based research at the interface between computer science and the biomedical sciences, focussing on applying computer science and mathematical techniques to clinically and biologically pressing problems. Key applications include physiological modelling (heart, cardiovascular and cardiorespiratory systems, soft tissue mechanics and cancer), biological image and signal analysis, and systems biology. Work is almost entirely done jointly with domain specialists in life sciences and clinical departments. The Computational Biology Group also plays a key role in interdisciplinary initiatives across the University, including the Life Sciences Interface and Systems Biology DTCs which are led by Professor Gavaghan and the BBSRC/EPSRC-funded Centre for Integrative Systems Biology.
