The words ‘data’ and ‘algorithm’ are heard everywhere these days, especially in healthcare. 

At the University of Leeds, researchers are using data to improve how we diagnose and treat cancer. Meet our team and members of the 'use MY data' movement to explore how data can be used to inform care. Also, use a Galton Board and POP box to understand probability and population sampling in action.

A second group of researchers are making algorithms to detect when cancer returns after treatment, and are building models of heart diseases. Come and have a go at some algorithms and maybe your own algorithm can help others, too.
