Multiscale Modeling in Biology

Many fundamental processes in the life sciences are characterized by the interaction of effects on many temporal and/or spatial scales. To understand these is not only of principal theoretical interest but also an important prerequisite for the efficient simulation, and prediction and control of complex biological systems. Questions are how to derive effective macroscopic models which avoid the explicit resolution of microscopic structures and processes where not necessary; Which biological information on the small scales is needed to describe the macroscopic quantities of interest correctly. A close connection to experimental findings to tackle these questions is indispensable. Therefore a group of mathematicians and experimentalists should be brought together to enhance collaboration in this field. This workshop will be cosponsored by the DFG Priority Program on Analysis, Modeling and Simulation of Multiscale Problems.
