Over the last two decades, breakthroughs in the research methodologies employed by experimental physiologists and clinical scientists have paved the way for an explosion in the quality and quantity of available data. These developments have underpinned many of the post-genomic era’s advances in understanding, enabling the analysis of specific physiological systems through the collection of unique individual data sets. In parallel with these experimental developments, advances in computational and numerical techniques have accelerated our capacity to derive new knowledge, making possible the integration of multiple data sets through the application of bio-physically based computational models. These modeling developments now provide the potential for analyzing complex cause and effect relationships and facilitating the development of improved mechanistic understanding in a range of physiological systems. Through the efforts of an active and multidisciplinary research community the heart has emerged as arguably the most advanced current example of this approach. ┬áPrevious Cardiac Physiome Workshops have been held in:

  • Seoul (2016)
  • Auckland (2015)
  • Bar Harbor (2013)
  • San Diego (2012)
  • Oxford (2011)
  • Cambridge (2009)
  • Auckland (2008)
  • Oxford (2006)
  • San Diego (2005)
  • Auckland (2003)
  • Queenstown (2001)

Building on the momentum generated from these previous workshops, the 2017 Cardiac Physiome Workshop will be held at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada, from November 6-9..
