Cardiovascular System Dynamics Society (CSDS), founded in 1976,
by organ system physiologist and biomedical engineers, was a historic first
in its mathematical and quantitative approach to cardiovascular mechanics.
Currently the society
includes investigators in muscle and vascular biology, subcellular and
sarcomere dynamics, the microcirculation, cardiovascular biology, clinical
disease, and modeling. The primary theme remains cardiovascular function,
its physiologic and molecular mechanisms, with an aim to understand how
these features integrate to achieve overall performance. An important
component of the overall approach remains inclusion of mathematical
predictive and causal models for the micro to the macro level.
