Virtual Human Research Seminar

Winter 2008

MEBI 591B / CSE 590R

Wed. at 3:30 PM in room E-216 of the UW Health Sciences Building MAP


A grand challenge for biomedical computing is to develop a complete simulation of a human being. In this seminar we focus on one aspect of this challenge, namely, how informatics, ontologies and quantitative biosimulation can be integrated to provide clinically useful mathematical models. Relevant topic areas include the collection, storage and integration of patient data, the clinical application of quantitative models, model formats and interoperability, and the visualization of model structure and output.
