Symposium Description

The Organ based symposium will showcase the most recent, exciting and impactful developments in organ-level multiscale modelling and simulation. Advancements in both knowledge of human patho-physiology and computational power have enabled the progress of organ-level modelling and simulation to impressive levels of maturity. The symposium will illustrate the state-of-the-art in several areas including cardiovascular and neuromusculoskeletal biomedicine, with a special emphasis in scientific discovery as well as clinical and industrial applications.

Wednesday 25th September, 11:00 – 12:30, 13:30 – 15:30; Kelvin Lecture Theatre
Friday 27th September, 10:15 – 12:00; Kelvin Lecture Theatre
