Modeling the eye as a window on the body

October 15 to October 19, 2018

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Lucia Carichino, Simone Cassani, Sergey Lapin, and Alice Verticchio Vercellin

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to bringing together experts in mathematical modeling, medical doctors and statisticians to share their perspectives and expertise with the final goal to develop a mathematical model linking the eye to the body. The eye represents a unique organ where first signs of systemic diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, emerge and may be assessed with non-invasive techniques.

The main topics for the workshop are:

The central goal of the workshop is to use mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, and clinical data in synergy to help in the early diagnosis, follow up and treatment of ocular and systemic diseases. Since the condition of the eye is indicative of the one of the other organs in the body, coupled mathematical models are suitable tools to investigate correlations and/or to predict the effect of different diseases in different anatomical regions.
