About this book

This work, designed for clinicians, adopts a coordinated multidisciplinary approach to a range of topics central to complexity in medicine, with the aim of offering an integrated, unitary perspective that stands in contrast to the traditional simplification inherent in the subdivision into single specialties. It recognizes that medicine today has to face emerging issues that current knowledge cannot accommodate because the properties to be addressed do not simply equate to the sum of the properties of single components but rather are the product of interactions among them or among different environments. Examples include the interactions among genetic, environmental, pathological, psychological, and ethical aspects. This new model, represented by so-called systems medicine, entails a different approach, already reflected in, for instance, the view of cancer as a cellular ecosystem in evolution rather than a unique disease and the acknowledgment that future guidelines for cardiovascular prevention will have to consider many factors beyond blood pressure or cholesterol levels. It also recognizes the impact of other fields upon medicine, as in the crucial contributions of CERN to projects of great medical importance and of grid computing to genomics research. The Handbook of Complexity in Medicine offers stimulating insights into this new reality; it will provide readers with a tool for deepening their understanding of topics that even today remain somewhat unclear and will hopefully assist in decision making that takes into account this uncertainty.

About the authors

Marco Manca got a degree in Medicine at the University of Bologna in 2006. After years of research in Bologna, as freelancer and contractor, he became Researcher at the Maastricht University from 2009 to 2013. He is Chair of the scientific board of the European Society of Athletic Therapy and Training and Member of the Task Force on Global Practice and Credentialing of Athletic Trainers and Therapists. He is also scientific secretary of the Grupo Luso-Italiano de Arteriosclerose, a non-profit organisation with purely scientific purposes focused on atherosclerosis and its related topics. Dr. Manca is also co-founder and President of the SCim Pulse Foundation (NGO). SCim Pulse aims to impulse sustainable innovation by acting as a broker of trust between otherwise far stakeholders and by acting as a sandbox to extract meaning from the collision, sometimes serendipitous, of scientific and business actors. Since January 2014 he’s been senior fellow for Medical Applications at CERN.
