Researchers To Simulate And Analyze Brain, Immune System Activity And Apply Math To Medical Problems

Tuesday, June 24, 2008 - 21:28 in Health & Medicine

In an effort to promote the application of mathematics to medical treatment, researchers in the University of Pittsburgh's department of mathematics will undertake a $2.5 million project to create models of how the brain and immune system function and change over time in response to certain illnesses, infections, and treatment. The models are intended to help doctors better understand and predict the possible short- and long-term responses of their patient's body to treatment.
