- Biomedical research (or experimental medicine), in general simply known as medical research, is the basic research or applied research conducted ...
- Biomedical Research: The area of science devoted to the study of the processes of life, the prevention and treatment of disease, and the genetic and environmental factors related to disease and health.
- Biological Models System: A system that can be observed instead of the original system, human or animal, that is of ultimate interest to the research.
- Researchers use models because they help to answer questions that could not be answered using the original system with the technology and methods that exist. By using a model, researchers increase their ability to isolate and study certain features that would be too complex to study or impossible to isolate in the original system.
- Types of Models Used in Biomedical Research:
- Whole living animals (human and non-human)
- Living systems composed of samples from the original animal (i.e., tissue culture)
- Non-living mechanical or molecular systems
- Mathematical models (i.e., computer simulations)
