The Spring School provides doctoral and postdoctoral researchers with cutting-edge methods and technology on identification of predictive and casual biomarkers of disease, covering a range of topics including:

· Types of bimedical/biomarker data (e.g. multi-omics) and issues for integration

· Imaging biomakers in health care, Image registration

· Statistical methods for representing shape and their application in radiology biomarkers
