Computer simulation organ functions based on models offers the potential to increase researchers' understanding of the causes of medical conditions such as heart disease and to work towards developing new drugs and treatments to combat these illnesses.

The main aim of the Integrative Biology (IB) project is to realise this potential by developing multi-scale models - spanning the range from genes to whole organs - and to provide data management features for its disparate users including the sharing of data in a secure infrastructure, and enabling the storage and re-use of simulation outputs.
