PNNL Computer Model Predicts the Future for Stroke Victims

Computational biology researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have developed a model for predicting what’s happening during a stroke, how the process evolves over time, the potential outcomes, and the effects of different treatment options.

A functional network model of processes important during neuroprotection and stroke, and how they might interact with each other.

This is the first step in being able to suggest {to health care providers} that if you do X and Y, you’d get a much bigger effect than what you’re currently doing,” said Dr. Jason McDermott, a PNNL computational biologist and lead author on the paper.
