On June 3rd, Md-Paedigree partners from Lynkeus and Univeristy of Sheffield attended a Philosophy of Science Workshop organised by the Bio-Techno-Practice network in collaboration with the IESE Business School of the University of Navarra, in Barcelona, at their fantastic premises (http://www.iese.edu/).

The aim of the workshop was to “reflect on the philosophical foundations of in silico modelling and on the various implications of its biomedical applications: drugs, devices, and clinical trials”, taking into account the “promises of in silico modelling to overcome the limitations of in vitro and in vivo experimental models used to represent human biological systems, as well as also the limits on our cognitive capacities to store, analyse and represent the enormous information needed to reliably and accurately capture system complexity and variability”. The workshop was chaired by Prof Marta Bertolaso, from the Campus Bio-Medico, Rome, and was the occasion of a series of presentations and of a lively and very interesting discussion.
