Short-term Cardiovascular-Respiratory Control Mechanisms
October 9 to October 13, 2006
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
and Hien Tran
This workshop will be the first highly focused attempt to tackle complex problems in cardio-respiratory physiology by bringing together researchers with expertise in physiology, mathematics, and statistics.
The overall objective of this workshop is to discuss methodologies to further develop mathematical models to improve understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of clinical problems related to short-term cardiovascular-respiratory regulation. In particular, the specific topics for the workshop include:
- Identification of physiological mechanisms involved in short-term cardiovascular-respiratory regulation. The goal will be to identify hypothesis stating how these mechanisms interact and to propose strategies for development of new mathematical and statistical models.
- Development of a methodological/computational framework for adapting complex mathematical models to clinical applications as well as for making these models accessible to the medical community.
- Development of new projects (and, thus new collaborations) related to short-term cardiovascular and respiratory regulation. Specific attention will be given to identifying questions and topics that can be pursued at the undergraduate level.
