Presented by:
Joseph Loscalzo, M.D., Ph.D.
Brigham and Women's Hospital 
Boston, Mass.

In this presentation, the author will illustrate the shortcomings of the conventional reductionist approach to cardiovascular biology and therapeutics; demonstrate the importance and feasibility of a systems-based approach to understanding cardiovascular pathobiological processes; and explore the potential benefits of complex systems analysis to using the ever expanding pool of information in a rational and predictive way to promote personalized cardiovascular medicine.

After participating in this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define the differences between reductionist and holistic approaches to cardiovascular pathobiology.
  • Review network approaches and graph theory as they are applied to complex systems representations and analyses of cardiovascular phenomena.
  • Demonstrate the use of systems approaches to representing, defining and understanding the dynamics of cardiovascular disease.
  • Explore the use of systems biology in cardiovascular risk assessment and therapeutics.
