The Auckland Bioengineering Institute (ABI) has over 30 years of experience
developing computational physiology models of a number of organ systems,
including the heart , lungs  and GI system . These
anatomically-based multiscale models use finite element techniques that are able to
capture the dynamic 3D geometry of an organ, as well as its anisotropic and
inhomogeneous tissue structure. In addition, our methods enable us to include
molecular level detail that is relevant to the physiological phenotype of the intact
organ (e.g. ).
