Col. (Dr.) Karl Friedl quote
Col. (Dr.) Karl Friedl, director of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command's Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center on Fort Detrick, Md., referring to the importance of computational biology, defined as the application of computer science, applied mathematics and statistics to addressing biological challenges.

One of the most significant pieces for the future of our military medical research that we are focused on is computational biology, which contributes to predictive modeling and tools for decision support systems. It involves everything from how we would interpret the sensors that we might put on casualties from the evacuation all the way through to their rehabilitation in some remote area, where we would need to monitor how they are doing.
