VPH News Letter – Dancing digital twins

Uncategorised Posted on Mon, October 17, 2022 09:00:00

The opening ceremony of the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) conference was something special, it featured a lecture-performance with our physiologically based dancing digital twins. The VPH Institute has now published a news letter were you can read more about the development of the digital twins for the past 20 years, and more about the future visions for using them within biomedical teaching and patient-centric care.

ICSB 2022

Uncategorised Posted on Mon, October 10, 2022 09:59:46

The 21st International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB 2022) was held in Berlin, Germany, these past few days. We had a great time there and had the opportunity to meet great people, take part in interesting discussions, and see some of Berlin. During the conference, we presented several posters and gave some talks (summarized below). We would like to extend our thanks to the ICSB committee for a well-organized conference. Until next time, from the ISB group.

The full program can be found here: https://www.icsb2022.berlin/, and down below is a summary of our contributions.

The IEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference (EMBC)

Events Posted on Mon, August 22, 2022 07:00:00

In the middle of July, Kajsa Tunedal went to Glasgow to attend the IEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference (EMBC) (https://embc.embs.org/2022/) and presented an ePoster: “Insights of Hemodynamic Changes in Hypertension and Diabetes through a 4D Flow MRI-Based Personalized Cardiovascular Model”. It was a great experience starting with a very scottish opening ceremony and followed by many interesting talks, workshops, and meetings with other modellers and researchers with interests in cardiovascular mechanisms and measurements.
