About the SimEA project Seminar Series

The SimEA project Seminar Series aims at promoting and disseminating scientific knowledge, focusing on Computational Science and Engineering, by featuring prominent researchers from around the world presenting their views and addressing key questions. 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 810660.



In this talk Prof. John Terry will take us on a journey from scribbled networks on a blackboard in 2012 to the Nature SpinOff final in 2021. He will first introduce mathematical models that were developed to understand the fundamental network mechanisms of seizures. From there he will describe approaches to uncover evidence of network alterations in the background EEG activity of people with epilepsy. Building on this understanding, he will introduce a novel biomarker of seizure risk that is called BioEP and talk through the business development activities were undertaken that culminated in establishing a spin-out company Neuronostics in 2018. He will highlight both successes and failures along the way and reflect on lessons learned.


About the Speaker

John TerryProfessor John Terry is Interdisciplinary Professorial Fellow: a post he holds jointly across Mathematics, Computer Science and the Institute for Metabolism and Systems Research. John’s research transcends traditional discipline boundaries speaking to mathematics, computer science, physics, biology, biomedical and clinical sciences. John has substantially contributed to approaching 70 pieces of original research and has a very strong track-record of research funding. John holds 1 patent with 2 pending, and is co-founder of Neuronostics (a start-up company established in 2018).

John sits on a number of national and international committees including the EPSRC peer-review college, the MRC non-clinical training and career development panel, the UKRI future leaders fellowship committee and the Epilepsy Research UK scientific advisory committee. John is also a passionate science communicator and co-wrote and co-directed Beyond My Control: a unique piece of theatre that brings to life what it is like to have epilepsy, the mathematics behind understanding brain networks and how this can be used to better diagnose epilepsy.
