Subject: VPHi: AA MEMBER WEBINAR - Enrico Dall'Ara “Preclinical assessment of the effect of skeletal interventions with physiology based computational modelling” 14 Dec, 17 CET

Dear VPHi members,

On Monday 14 Dec 2020 at 17 CET the Avicenna Alliance will host one of the webinars of its webinar series for members-only. 
This monthly initiative has the goal to enable both Avicenna member companies and VPHi Members to get to know each other better and share their knowledge about their main activities, expertise and interests. The series alternates presentations by academia and industry members.

Webinar title: "Preclinical assessment of the effect of skeletal interventions with physiology based computational modelling" by Dr Enrico Dall’Ara from the University of Sheffield

Currently the journey of a new pharmacological product from discovery to the market is very long and expensive, due to the high failure rate. Musculoskeletal diseases affect dramatically the quality of life of patients in our ageing society, with impact similar to those of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
In this webinar in silico approaches to assess the effects of diseases and treatments preclinically in mouse models will be introduced. The usage of longitudinal high-resolution imaging for estimating the effect of induced accelerated bone resorption and combined bone anabolic interventions on the morphometric, densitometric and biomechanical properties of the bone will be described. Finally advantages and current limitations of computational models of bone remodelling will be presented.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
Best regards

In silico medicine will be the future
