Module content and teaching

Principal aims

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.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should 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.

Timetabled teaching activities

Spring. This module includes 30 hours of lectures and 2 hours of examples classes.Required self-study: 118 hours
