Find out how Sheffield researchers are transforming healthcare with in silico solution
Just last week we were delighted to announce that the University of Sheffield’s Insigneo Institute for in silico medicine is among the main beneficiaries of 2.1 million euros in funding to help develop technology to monitor how well people walk – a vital sign of health and wellbeing. The project named MOBILISE-D, which aims to revolutionise assessment of mobility loss using digital technology.
The countdown is now on to the annual Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine’s showcase event on Friday 17 May 2019.
Insigneo - a collaborative initiative between our university and Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust - is Europe’s largest research centre dedicated entirely to the development, validation, and use of in silico medicine technologies. You are invited to Insigneo’s annual showcase, on Friday 17 May 2019 at the Octagon Centre, where you will be able to learn more about the latest innovations in personalised, predictive medicine created by the institute.
Insigneo aims to transform healthcare. Its modelling and simulation technologies can contribute to the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and management of disease. Since launching in 2012, key work has included predicting the risks of hip fractures, helping with effective treatment for coronary heart disease and developing virtual reality colonoscopies to help clinicians find abnormalities in the digestive system.
Insigneo Showcase 2019
Friday 17 May 2019, Octagon Centre
President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Koen Lamberts, will open the Showcase event and introduce this year’s plenary speaker Professor Liesbet Geris, President of the Virtual Physiological Human Institute and Professor of Computational Tissue Engineering at the University of Liège.
The day will feature:
- Early Career Researcher presentations – hear about emerging research with perspectives from the next generation of researchers;
- Talks covering the full scope of our research, with sessions addressing the role of medical imaging and innovative mathematical approaches in in silico medicine applications;
- An Industrial Village showcasing in silico medicine’s latest commercial applications and developments from our industrial partners;
- Networking opportunities and one-to-one discussions with funders, academics and clinicians.
The showcase is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in healthcare technology to find out about the latest developments in in silico medicine.
