Definition & Network Themes

QSP has often been defined in terms of other system sciences, e.g. Systems Biology. For the purposes of our network we define it as

the integration of biological mechanisms (from sub-cellular to patient cohorts) in quantitative mechanistic models and their application in the discovery and development of pharmaco-therapeutics.

Cross disciplinary themes associated with QSP and our Network include the following.

Pharmaceutical Themes Theoretical themes
Drug discovery Model reduction
Drug development Multi-scale modelling
Translation Data integration
Combinatorial therapies Computational issues
Disease progression Network analysis
Efficacy vs toxicity Identifiability & inference
Drug response Handling big data
Targets/Receptors Mathematical model analysis
Supporting the 3Rs Systems & control optimisation
