Tutorial addresses multi-cell, multi-scale modeling
Date:1/6/2011

To be realistic and predictive, biological models need to cover a broad range of scales from inside cells to between cells to whole organs and beyond. The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) will host a tutorial May 18-21, 2011, to introduce a new approach to multi-cell, multi-scale modeling.

Using the Glazier-Graner-Hogeweg and reaction kinetics network models as well as the CompuCell3D and Systems Biology Markup Language simulation environments, a new modeling approach will be introduced.

By the end of the tutorial, participants will have learned the skills needed to build models of vascularized tumor growth, segmentation in vertebrate embryos or limb bud development, for example. The goal is for participants to be able to build, test and analyze multi-cell, multi-scale biomedical models.

The Multi-cell, Multi-scale Modeling Tutorial will be held at NIMBioS on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus and will consist of a series of lectures and lab sessions by tutorial organizers and guest lecturers. Tutorial organizers include James A. Glazier (Director, Biocomplexity Inst.; Dept. of Physics, Indiana Univ.); Maciek Swat (Research Scientist, Biocomplexity Inst., Indiana Univ.); James Sluka (Senior Scientist, Biocomplexity Inst., Indiana Univ.); Randy Heiland (Research Scientist, Open Systems Lab, Indiana Univ.); and Herbert Sauro (Department of Bioengineering, Univ. of Washington).

The tutorial is primarily geared toward faculty and graduate students in the biological sciences, but the tutorial also suits faculty and students from other fields including those with primarily mathematics backgrounds who have had little exposure to biomedical modeling.
