Simulation of the human body for a predictive healthcare

  1. 1. Simulation of the human body for a predictive healthcare
  2. 2. Can a computer model replicate humanphysiology?
  3. 3. The body syntheticComputer model: avast compendium ofmedical knowledge (inthe form of a program)drawn from:– epidemiological data– clinical trials– physician interviewstranslated intodifferential equations
  4. 4. Virtual physiological human (VPH)• Reproduction of thecomplex workings ofhuman biology• Simulated population“developing” medicalproblems• Individual risk profiles• Virtual trials (shorterand cheaper)
