Recent developments in mathematical models, computational methods and computer hardware and software platforms offer the potential to simulate complex biological systems, from individual cells to multi-cellular organs. This approach enables in-silico experimentation, providing the ability to ask questions about how a system operates, why it works, and whether it is possible to alter the basic processes using external factors. In this ambitious proposal we aim to perform research that both expands the state of the art in biological multi-scaled modelling and simulation, with a particular focus on the heart, and the software systems required to make this work.
