Computer models in biomedicine: What for?

Abstract

Biomedical research and clinical practice rely on complex and multimodality

datasets for the characterisation of human organs in health and disease. In

computational biomedicine, we often argue that multiscale computational

models are and will be increasingly required as tools for data integration,

for probing the established knowledge of physiological systems, and for

predictions of the effects of therapies and disease. But what has

computational biomedicine delivered so far? This presentation will describe

successes, failures and future directions of computational models in

cardiac research from basic to translational science.
