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.

Dancing Digital Twins – Seeing the music of Chopin and and Beethoven

Events Posted on Wed, April 27, 2022 23:00:44

After many years of preparations – 20+ years of developing the digital twins in general, and now 3-4 years of making them dance – the first lecture-performance is at last about to take place. On Thursday at 17.00 it happens! In this highly innovative event, you will not only be able to see with your eyes what happens in some of the best music ever written, but also be able to see inside a computer copy of some people in the audience – into their digital twins. By looking at and inside these digital twins, we will together explore what happens both in the body when you dance, and in the music that your twins are dancing to.

Does it sound intriguing?

Then come to Berzeliussalen at Linköping University, Campus US, on April 28, at 17-17.45. Welcome!
