Hopkins Forms Disease Analysis Institute
A new Johns Hopkins University institute will focus on the use of computers and information technology to identify diseases at early stages and improve treatment.
"Our mission is to develop a new field that we call computational medicine," said Raimond L. Winslow, director of the Institute for Computational Medicine.
Researchers will use advanced computational methods to analyze and model disease mechanisms "to understand, quantitatively, how diseases progress," Winslow said. "We want to be able to predict who is at risk of developing a disease and how to treat it more effectively."
Among the research focuses at the new institute will be biological systems modeling, computational anatomy and bioinformatics.
Biological systems modeling involves the use of computer models to unravel the molecular basis of human disease.
