Biomedical Systems Modelling

(15 Credits)


A wide variety of biomedical processes behave as dynamic systems where the system states vary in time, often in response to external stimuli or interventions. The aims of this module are to introduce techniques and computer tools for modelling, predicting, analysing and understanding dynamic behaviour in biomedical systems.

Learning Outcomes:

At completion, students will be able to:

  • Understand procedures for developing physically based dynamic models of biomedical processes.
  • Understand the concepts and analytical techniques for assessing the qualitative behaviour of biomedical systems models.
  • Appreciate the role and use of continuous system simulation in biomedical systems modelling.
  • Appreciate the methods for deriving biomedical systems models from experimental data.
