With the changing dynamics in biomedical research having fully entered into the digital era, it is becoming increasingly clear after seven years of experience that we need more dedicated efforts to create opportunities by establishing stronger interfaces with physics, mathematics, systems biology, and computational sciences for future generations of Clinician Scientists. The newly proposed research and educational structure for integrating these new areas of expertise into the established CSP should act as a “central processing unit” to facilitate biomedical knowledge derived from a variety of clinical disciplines supported by leading technology experts to address the specific challenges of data-driven medicine in the future.
- Precision medicine in cancer and beyond,
- Systems biology,
- Big data science and decision support systems,
- Quantitative imaging,
- Computational neuroscience and brain simulation, and
- Augmented, mixed and virtual reality in surgery
