Project Development Team
The following web pages represent an ongoing project aimed at
developing a set of realistic in-silico simulations of
processes associated with Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and
neurodegeneration. The programs we are developing are java-based,
accessible over the web, and designed to enable exploration of
numerous biologically-based parameters influencing disease progression.
Links to the literature base, and full derivations of assumptions,
parameters, and interactions are also provided. If you have comments
about these simulations, or would like to contact us, kindly email
(1) Support during our first year of operation was
provided by In Silico Biosciences, Robert Carr, president.
(2) We are also funded under
Biomedical Models of Cellular and Physiological Systems and Disease
by the Mathematics of Information Technology
and Complex Systems (MITACS),
under the Network of Centers of Excellence (NCE) program of the
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research of Canada (NSERC).
