*Prof. Washington Mio* (

*Florida State University*)

"Topological Barcode Fields and Data" (

Abstract).

**Visiting Scientist: **
From 1st February 2016, Dr. Siekmann will be hosted for six months as a visiting scientist at the Felix Bernstein Institute for Mathematical Statistics in the Biosciences (FBMS). He will work on modelling stochastic mechanisms of signal transduction in human cells. Calcium plays a central role as a messenger in signal transduction. Calcium release from ion channels controls, for example, the heart beat and the initiation of action potentials in nerve cells. Before his return to Germany, Dr. Siekmann has worked for several years at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and the University of Melbourne (Australia).
