    • access to databases from descriptive and computational models

Welcome to the NSR Physiome Project!

The Physiome Project is the worldwide effort of several loosely connected research groups to define the physiome via databasing and the development of integrated quantitative and descriptive modeling. This work will help determine the future of medicine, change the way we think about human physiology, and strengthen the fabric of international scientific collaboration across political allegiances.
