Maths in medicine – computers test new medication

Researchers at the Zuse Institute Berlin are designing 3-D images of biochemical processes to analyse the effectiveness of medicines in our bodies.


Their work also focuses on side-effects and how they can be minimised or even eliminated. Computers also play an indispensable role in radiotherapy, serving to determine the appropriate dosage and duration.

In future, say researchers at the Zuse Institute, doctors may first tend to consult the data before even seeing the patient.
