Develops computer models and simulations of the same problem at different hierarchical scales
Reviews the state-of-the-art in multiscale computer modeling of the current frontiers in the biosciences
Bridges between traditional biomedical engineering work and the newer arenas of cellular and molecular bioengineering
This book reviews the state-of-the-art in multiscale computer modeling, in terms of both accomplishments and challenges. The information in the book is particularly useful for biomedical engineers, medical physicists and researchers in systems biology, mathematical biology, micro-biomechanics and biomaterials who are interested in how to bridge between traditional biomedical engineering work at the organ and tissue scales, and the newer arenas of cellular and molecular bioengineering.
