Mathematical Models and Their Applications in Diabetes, Hypertension, and Autism


Computational modelling can be used to reveal insights into the mechanisms of new drugs and to develop new diagnostic tools. Here I will discuss three major diseases: diabetes, hypertension, and autism. I will talk about how we construct models to simulate new diabetes drugs, to understand sex differences in hypertension, and to develop a new approach for diagnosing autism in children.
