There is no consistent definition of //computational medicine// yet. So I will come up with my own general definition for now: Computational medicine is the application of computing methods to model, simulate and visualize medical processes in a virtual environment.

//Computational Medicine// is commonly divided into four areas. For now I take the definition by JHU to clarify what Computational Medicine covers.

  • Computational Molecular Medicine (pharmacogenomics, metagenomics, ...)
  • Computational Physiology (disease process models, pharmacokinectic/pharmatcodynamic models, ...)
  • Computational Anatomy (imaging, implantable devices, ...)
  • Computational Healthcare (epidemiology, medical apps, ... )

For details look into the following paper: Computational Medicine - Translating Models to Clinical Care

Propsed Focus

  • Dynamics of affective disorders (cellular, tissue, organ, psychical, social)
  • Tissue healing processes after severve trauma (cellular, tissue, organ, organ system)
  • Multi-scale tumor dynamics (molecular, cellular, tissue, organ)
  • Computational surgery with focus on neuro and trauma surgery (tissue, organ, organ system, organism)
  • Modeling techniques for physiological pathophysiological processes
  • Foundational algorithms of tissue formation
