Additional speakers will be selected from among submitted abstracts.

This meeting, jointly organized by the Biophysical Society and the Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC), focuses on mathematical and biophysical models coupled with experiments and will be highly interdisciplinary with contributions from medicine, biology, physics, bioengineering, and mathematics. Topics will include:

  • Cell level: modelling of excitation contraction coupling, sarcomere models, metabolic modelling, ROS signaling, spatially resolved models, and subcellular structures;
  • Hemodynamics: flow in atria and ventricles, aortic flow, valve stenosis replacement, stenting;
  • Organ level: Electrophysiology, mechanics, total heart function, personalization; 
  • Modelling diseases: arrhythmia, antitachypacing and defibrillation, Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy.
