This website is about Systems Approaches to Disease.
Diseases affect specific anatomical locations and have distinct time courses. Diseases are the result of abnormal molecular and cellular action and interaction. Research in Systems Biology, Nonlinear Dynamics and Mathematical Biology tries to understand diseases as spatio-temporal patterns based on molecular and cellular mechanisms. The collaboration of Systems Researchers (mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, engineers, chemists) with Medical Investigators has led to innovative Systems Approaches in diagnosis and treatment.
We provide an overview of this new field and help to access recent and not so recent literature.
The next Workshop in our series The Dynamics of Disease will take place 21-23 August 2012 at the University of Manchester.
This year’s topics: Systems Approaches; Systems Neurology; Systems Endocrinology.
