In one in five people with NAFLD, the functioning liver cells, the hepatocytes, are replaced by connective tissue. Eventually this fibrosis becomes irreversible. In this state the liver is like a ‘scar that never heals’. Through it, the liver loses many of its vital functions.
LiSyM-Pillar II wants to know more about which factors promote fibrosis and the conditions under which fibrosis becomes irreversible How can fibrosis be diagnosed as early as possible? Researchers in the pillar are also

Computational models complement experimental methods in the analysis of tissue organization processes, and play an increasingly important role in systems biology and systems medicine. Creating and parameterizing mathematical models for the simulation of biological tissue dynamics at multiple scales is still a complex and resource-consuming task, which necessitates skills in diverse scientific disciplines. The software TiSim was conceived to facilitate programming, integration and deployment of
