Arrhythmic risk: regression, single cell biophysics, or big tissue simulations?

On the 15th March I presented at an FDA public Advisory Committee hearing on the proposals of the CiPA initative. CiPA aims to replace the current testing for increased drug-induced Torsade de Pointes (TdP) arrhythmic risk, which is a human … Continue reading

Ablation, scars and insights from parameter lumping

This is quite a long post elaborating on a bit of work I’ve been doing with Greg Morley and his group, which was published in Scientific Reports. I hope it provides an accessible introduction to a fairly complicated set of experiments … Continue reading

Hypotheses on hypotheses on …

(Subtitle: building on foundations of unknown shakiness?) In a lot of fields, a new mathematical model is constructed for each problem, and the model is an encoding of the quantitative rules of the hypothesis you are testing. The model is … Continue reading

A vision of the future

Jonathan Cooper and I have been working on a system for describing the simulation you would like to perform with a model*, in a way that is flexible enough to recreate the majority of possible experiments and post-processing, and machine-readable … Continue reading
