A talk by Raimond Winslow, Ph.D., director of Life Science and Medicine Research and professor of Bioengineering at the Roux Institute.
Dr. Winslow joined the Roux Institute from his role as the Raj and Neera Singh Professor of Biomedical Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he was the Founding Director of the Institute for Computational Medicine at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Whiting School of Engineering. In collaboration with colleagues at Hopkins and around the world, Winslow has contributed to the emergence of computational medicine, a discipline devoted to the development of quantitative approaches for understanding the mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease through applications of mathematics, engineering, and computational science.
Winslow’s research is focused in two areas. The first is use of computational modeling to understand the molecular mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias, or irregular heartbeats, and sudden cardiac death. The second is use of modeling methods to predict both the evolution of a patient’s health status over time, and the impending occurrence of significant adverse events before they occur.
