Cardiac quest: Insights from stimulating the heart’s geometry and function
Professor Edmund Crampin discusses his research into creating a computational model of the human heart with Dr Shane Huntington in the latest edition of UpClose, entitled “Cardiac quest: Insights from simulating the heart’s geometry and function”.
Professor Crampin is the Rowden White Chair of Systems and Computational Biology at the University of Melbourne, where he is Director of the Systems Biology Laboratory at the Melbourne School of Engineering, as well as being an Adjunct Professor in the Faculties of Science and Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
His research uses mathematical and computer modeling to investigate regulatory processes and pathways underlying complex human diseases. Current research projects in the Systems Biology Lab focus on building mathematical models of heart cells to understand the development of heart disease, and developing computational approaches to study the network of molecular interactions underlying the development of cancer. The Lab is also involved in projects in biosensor design, biomarker identification, and development of computational tools and standards for integrative systems biology.
