Herbert Sauro

Our long term goal is to develop credible and reliable computational models of disease states that could by used by clinicians to more effectively treat disease.
Credible predictive models of disease
Supporting best practicing in computational modeling
Control theory applied of cellular networks
Develop new approaching to mechansistic modeling of cells
My research includes the foillowing broad objectives:

1. Use mathematics and computation to help understand the dynamics and operation of cellular processes.
2. Develop new more reliable approaches to modeling complex systems such that the models can be used with confidence in clinical settings.
3. Disseminate the work to the wider scientific community and support best practices in systems biology modeling multi-scale modeling of subcellular and multicellular systems.
