Research:

Mathematics is used in health research to make suitable models to improve our health and also our health care.

In health we specifically focus on three research directions: Medical Imaging, Optimization of medical processes and Modelling of biomedical processes.

Mathematics in medical imaging can be used in various ways. For example, we can make models of the brain that can be transformed into images. These images are used to help surgeons find tumours in the brain in clinical neuroscience. In addition, mathematical models are used for healing burn wounds. We have developed models to simulate the healing of different types of wounds and the development of scars, thus helping to unravel the mechanisms behind normal and abnormal wound healing. This process also offers perspectives for replacing animal tests.

Furthermore, we optimise medical processes using mathematics. This can be used in health care logistics. For example, how do we make queuing more efficient so that we long queues can be reduced. Also, how do we plan our health care better so that everyone gets help when needed.

Finally, we model biomedical processes using scientific computing. This helps us to understand many processes in our body such as our metabolism and our hormone system.
