The understanding of biological processes, e.g. related to cardio-vascular disease and treatment, can significantly be improved by numerical simulation. In this paper, we present an approach for a multiscale simulation environment, applied for the prediction of in-stent re-stenos is. Our focus is on the coupling of distributed, heterogeneous hardware to take into account the different requirements of the coupled sub-systems concerning computing power. For such a concept, which is an extension of the standard multiscale computing approach, we want to apply the term Distributed Multiscale Computing.
