Register for EPSRC’s MultiSim Modelathon 2017  A one-day symposium followed by a three-day modelling competition on combining experimental and computational research to reduce in vivo testing in a pre-clinical setting
Dates: Monday – Thursday, 11-14 September 2017, Diamond Building, University of Sheffield
Audience: Researchers in biomechanics, computational modelling or image based solutions
Purpose: An opportunity to discuss, network and practise multi-scale research modelling skills with support from academics, industry software and modelling experts from Ansys, Dassault Systemes, Synopsys and Materialise, and compete to win prizes
Find out more and register at the online store by 20 August 2017. Places are limited to 80 participants.

This year the challenges will be based around producing a murine in silico model to look at the effects of loading and angiogenesis on the healing process in bones. The starting point for these challenges are CT and MRI images of a mouse. Participants will gain a deeper insight into building musculoskeletal models, finite element and cardiovascular models from personalised clinical data.
