OLISSIPO – Fostering Computational Biology Research and Innovation in Lisbon, an international Horizon 2020-funded project coordinated by INESC-ID, has recently collaborated in the production of the TV program Isto é Matemática (“This is Math”).

In episode 6 of the currently running season of the program, the mathematician and presenter Rogério Martins visited the Taguspark campus of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) and spoke about artificial intelligence, data science, computational biology and their potential in revolutionizing the future of diagnostic medicine.

OLISSIPO is coordinated at INESC-ID by Susana Vinga, Information and Decision Support Systems (IDSS) researcher and Associate Professor at IST. Bringing together four reference European institutions — the European Molecular Biology Laboratory at Heidelberg, ETH Zurich, Inria and INESC-ID — OLISSIPO aims at enhancing the competences in computational biology at INESC-ID with the ultimate goal of creating an international pole of excellence in multi-disciplinary science in Portugal.
