In silico Medicine Workshop

Barcelona, June 3, 2015, h 13:30-18:30.

In silico modeling promises to overcome the limitations of the in vitro and in vivo experimental models used to represent human biological systems, but also the limits on our cognitive capacities to store, analyze and represent the enormous amount of information needed to reliably and accurately capture system complexity and variability. The Avicenna project, a leading group for in silico clinical trials, will hold its 5th meeting in Barcelona on 4th – 5th June 2015. Taking this opportunity, our workshop – organized by Bio-Techno-Practice network in collaboration with IESE – will reflect on the philosophical foundations of in silico modeling and on the various implications of its biomedical applications: drugs, devices, and clinical trials.

Talks

  • Annamaria Carusi – Validation and variability: dual challenges on the path from systems biology to systems medicine
  • Matteo Cerri – The limited complexity: a first­step tool for in silico modelling of complex biological systems
