The "Mathematics of Neural Networks" theme has fostered important partnerships with some of the world's leading researchers in mathematics and neuroscience.  

In June, Dr. Christian Maire will contribute to the team's efforts to bridge the gap between mathematical discovery and medical practice.  An internationally recognized leader in numbers theory, Maire has held visiting positions at Cornell University and McGill University and has taken a leading role in the organization of highly successful summer schools in Gabon, Bénin, and Cameroon.

Maire will be joining the team for a two-month visit that will begin in June.  He will be the first Visiting Fellow of the Western Academy to stay in Malhotra House, a visitor's residence that was offered to Western University by the generous donation of Desh and Ladi Malhotra.

In July, Maire will be joined by contributing researchers Dr. Farshid Hajir (University of Massachusetts, Amherst) and Dr. Ravi K. Ramakrishna (Cornell).
