Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) are engineered synergies between computational components and devices or sensors. There is intense interest in CPS in the health care space. Much of the work is characterized by force-fitting an engineering solution into a clinical problem. An alternative (and possibly better) strategy is developing the CPS from a deep understanding of the interplay of physiology and disease. Advances in cellular and molecular biology lead the way.
