One of the most exciting aspects of systems biology is integration of diverse disciplines, ranging from mathematics to molecular biology. Mathematical methods are crucial to move us from describing biological processes, to predicting their behavior and to manipulate them by giving new clues and possible targets, and so bring us an important step closer to medical application.
We are using mathematical modeling to deeper understand aging and age associated molecular processes as well as their implications on age-dependent diseases. As life expectancy is increasing there is a strong need to ensure a healthy old age. Ageing is by far the biggest risk factor for a wide range of prevalent clinical conditions such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's. Given that ageing, as many age-related diseases are driven by accumulated damage (known as aggregates), finding the way for repairing and removing age-related cellular aggregates is crucial for preventing, curing and treating age-associated diseases. In the new era of biology and medicine, mathematical modeling of complex biological phenomena and diseases has become a fundamental approach for combining, interpreting, and analyzing the vast amount of accumulating data gathered in biological investigations. Obtaining a detailed mechanistic understanding through mathematical modeling of damage driven processes will have major implications in the study of aging at a cellular level and will facilitate experimental approaches.
