On May 10 we will have the presentations of Camilo Palazuelos Calderón and Amaya Llorente Mecieces, within the Progress Reports Valdecilla program. The session will be held in the Innovation and User Experience Laboratory – Linnux at 14:00 hours, being broadcast live through the Zoom platform.


The ARCEUS project: Artificial intelligence for the early detection of intra-abdominal infection after colorectal surgery.

SPEAKER: Camilo Palazuelos Calderón

Camilo Palazuelos is Assistant Professor (Languages and Computer Systems area) at the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science of the University of Cantabria. He holds a PhD in Science and Technology (2019), a master’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science (2013) and an engineering degree in Computer Science (2012) from the University of Cantabria. He has visited several European research groups, such as the Distributed Sensor Systems Group (Philips Research Europe), the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (University of Oxford) and the Biomarkers and Susceptibility Unit (Catalan Institute of Oncology). His research focuses on the representation of knowledge with uncertainty and its integration and impact on clinical decision making, especially in surgery. He is the principal investigator of the regional ARCEUS project, which aims to develop an intelligent system capable of early and safe discharge of colorectal surgery patients. Camilo has published more than 30 journal articles, book chapters and conference contributions and has participated in national and international research projects.


Role of BCMA in Multiple Myeloma: mechanisms and drug resistance

SPEAKER: Amaya Llorente Mecieces
