We all now know about R, but sometimes it can be good to consider another number: the growth rate of an epidemic.
Mathematicians are helping to develop an AI tool to help with diagnosing COVID-19 and making prognoses for infected patients.
How far can virus-carrying droplets fly in different environments — from buses to supermarkets? Maths can provide some answers.
Will we one day have digital versions of our entire body to help us make medical and life style decisions and see what medical treatments are right for us? Find out in this podcast.
An urgent call has gone out to the scientific modelling community to help fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Two Cambridge mathematicians are helping to lead the charge.
We look at a crafty mathematical device which, among other things, has helped people understand what causes cholera.
How do mathematical models of COVID-19 work and should we believe them? We talk to an epidemiologist, who has been working flat out to inform the government, to find out more.
As the world prepares for the worst, we explore the maths that can help us stop a pandemic.
A new online tool developed with the help of statisticians enables patients to make informed treatment choices.
Inverse problems are mathematical detective problems. They can help solve crimes, are used in medical imaging, and much more.
