Dynamic phenomena are ubiquitous in biological systems and span multiple, interacting spatiotemporal scales. There is growing appreciation that quantifying them accurately will lead to deeper insights into human disease and even inspire novel therapies – but doing so is challenging, and will likely need innovative cross-disciplinary approaches and tools.
BioDynamics 2018 will showcase some of the very best cross-disciplinary research in this rapidly expanding field, with a focus on how the study of biological dynamics, and the mechanistic understanding it provides, can be used for clinical translation and patient-specific therapeutics. Talks will range from microscopic scales – how molecular dynamics influence disease phenotypes – to macroscopic scales – how neural, humoral and cardiovascular dynamics affect human health and disease.
