Joseph Loscalzo, M.D., Ph.D.
Brigham and Women's Hospital
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.
