Physiologic modeling (elective 2.e.)

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

None.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

Students who complete the module:

have knowledge about

  • bioelectric models
  • biochemical models 
  • biomechanical models

with the course both highlighting the similarity of mathematical representation across these type of models, and exemplifying these models with examples from various physiologic subsystems and therapeutic interventions including pharmacokinetics

Skills

have obtained skills in relation to model construction, simulation, fitting and validation which includes:

  • building of compartmental models
  • a basic understanding of other model types including finite element modeling.
  • parameter estimation and numerical optimization
  • identifiability and the appropriateness of model complexity.
  • evaluating the goodness of model fitting – model fitting statistics

Competences

  • are able to integrate skills and knowledge from different scientific fields
