Systems biology has introduced new paradigms in science by switching from a reductionist point of view to a more integrative approach toward the study of \-systems. As researchers over the past years have produced an extraordinary wealth of knowledge on human physiology, we now aim at integrating this knowledge to decipher the intimate relationships between the different components and scales that form the delicate balance in physiological systems. Our aim is to study the heart.
