Twice a year, the fellows of the Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) Graduate School, Germany, organise the Charlemagne Distinguished Lecture, which gives national and international high-profile scientists the opportunity to present their research activities.

The objective of the AICES fellows is to invite persons who have achieved impressive accomplishments throughout their career and thus to get inspired by their scientific achievements.

As the 15th speaker, the AICES fellows invited Denis Noble, Emeritus Professor of Cardiovascular Physiology here at DPAG, who gave a talk entitled, From Pacing the Heart to the Pace of Evolution, on February 19th 2018.

Professor Noble is one of the pioneers of Systems Biology and developed the first viable mathematical model of the working heart. He held the Burdon Sanderson Chair for 20 years at DPAG.
