From 4 - 9 September, the Insigneo Institute will host 1st and 2nd year PhD students from the Sano Centre for Computational Medicine (Krakow, Poland). The students will attend seminars and workshops on various aspects of computational medicine.

During this time the following information sessions will be made open to Insigneo members:

Introduction to VR (Dr John Fenner, USFD)
This seminar will cover the history of VR, its implications and future developments, and some technical aspects.

Exascale computing (Dr Jon McCullough, UCL)

This seminar will cover the motivations and challenges associated with the development of exascale machines for biomedical research.

Uncertainty quantification (Prof Richard Clayton, USFD)

This seminar will introduce the basic concepts behind uncertainty quantification with particular emphasis on cardiac electrophysiology.

Commercialisation and IP workshop (Mr Alex Wilkinson, USFD)

Through a mix of teaching and interactive learning, this session will provide an overview of how the commercialisation process works for medical technologies within the University of Sheffield.

Governance and ethical use of data (Dr Andrew Narracott, USFD)
