Workshop Synopsis:

New insights into emergent organizational properties of many biological phenomena can be gained by, and indeed require, mathematical and computational modeling.  Such modeling does not replace analysis at the cellular and molecular levels but complements it.  Mathematical and computational analysis is the best means available for describing and understanding the spatiotemporal behaviors of systems containing many components and operating on multiple scales.  Complex biomedical modeling efforts include predictive multiscale simulations consisting of different submodels at each scale, scalable parallelism for heterogeneous dynamical simulations, a data-rich environment with experimentally determined model parameters, and, finally, distributed multidisciplinary research teams and resources.

The goal of the Workshop is to bring together researchers in biomedical engineering and mathematical and computational biology from the US and UK to discuss recent developments in biomedical modeling and experiments, as well as possible future collaborations.  The two main biomedical topics of the Workshop will be biomechanics, including adaption or response of tissues to mechanical, chemical, or electromagnetic stimuli, and thrombus formation.
