Dynamical systems in physiological modeling

October 11-13, 2008

Dynamical systems are ubiquitous throughout physiology. Recognizing both the commonality of methods for understanding such systems and the diversity of applications to physiology, this conference aims to present a cross-section of theoretical and computational results from the level of cells to the level of organs.

Plenary Speakers:

Scientific Committee: Maarten de Hoop, Purdue; Marty Golubitsky, U. Houston and MBI; Eduardo Sontag, Rutgers

Organizers: Greg Buzzard, Purdue Math (buzzard at math.purdue.edu); Ann Rundell, Purdue BME
