This presentation will provide an overview of some recent research as well as opportunities for new discoveries into human health and diseases through studies at the intersections of different disciplines. Specific examples of such multidisciplinary approaches will be presented in the context of human malaria, hereditary blood disorders and cancer. Wherever appropriate, discussions of state-of-the-art experimental results will be accompanied by multi-scale computational simulations and experiments. Implications for multidisciplinary approaches that rely on recent developments in engineering, biophysics, genetics and biochemistry will be examined in light of fundamental mechanistic understanding, diagnostics and therapeutics.
