Pharmaceutical Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Biosimulation in Drug Development
edited by Martin Bertau

Biosimulation in Drug Development covers all pharmaceutically relevant topics and provides a comprehensive introduction to this novel and revolutionary tool, presenting both concepts and application examples of biosimulated cells, organs and organisms.

Following an introduction to the role of biosimulation in drug development, the book discusses the simulation of cells and tissues, as well as simulating drug action and effect.

A further section is devoted to simulating networks and populations, and the book concludes with a look at the potential for biosimulation in industrial drug development and for regulatory decisions.
