QuanTI Closing Conference

School of Mathematics
University of Leeds
19 - 21 April 2017

Fellows at the Closing Conference

Closing conference
Closing conference


This three day conference was held to publicise the network's research achievements at the end of the project. Network fellows and partners were encouraged to give presentations to publicise their research achievements throughout the network. The meeting also featured talks by international researchers. Participants included fellows whose fellowships had ended, as well as associated partners and external visiting scientists.

This ensured that the conference was a major international event in Quantitative Immunology, with significant participation from outside, and so assisted dissemination of the ITN, and helped the fellows to build international contacts.
