Researchers met at the National Library of Medicine on July 23-24, 2001 to brainstorm about the next stage in the development of a Digital Human. This meeting, called Open Source Software Framework for Organ Modeling Simulation, was organized to review the current state of computer-based modeling in medicine, identify critical next steps for technical resource development, and create a vision for building useful and functional computer models of human biology. The long term vision is the development of accurate and validated models and simulations of cells, tissues, organs and organ systems that can serve as frameworks for experimental analysis, patient care, and training in biology and medicine.
