One of the many goals of the In Silico World project is to monitor the perception of in silico trials among senior management of medical industries and to promote citizen trust in in silico technologies. This month our partners, VPH Institute and KU Leuven, hosted the first focus group about in silico medicine.
Watch the first proof of concept of the numerical approach conceived to assess the mechanical performances of a pacemaker lead in SimCardioTest.
The researcher and clinical team at KU Leuven are developing an animal trial using pulmonary valve conduits to generate data for the modelling of the inflammation and mechano-mediated remodelling mechanisms in tissue-engineering scaffolds. This will allow SimInSitu researchers to predict the long-term response of the implanted biodegradable materials by in-silico predictions.
