CompBioMed e-Seminar #23

CompBioMed’s 23rd e-seminar took place on 27 May 2022 and focused on Supercomputer-based in-silico clinical trials in cardiac therapies towards exascale computing. Biological systems are one of the most challenging modelling and simulation arenas. Let us pick one, which is particularly difficult: Cardiac modelling. Complex multi-scale and multi-physics, very large input datasets, a massive amount…

CompBioMed e-Seminar #24

CompBioMed’s 24th e-Seminar took place on 5 July 2021 and focused on Simulating human cellular blood flow at extreme detail: a drop of blood at exascale Blood is the single most important fluid in the human body. It has an important role in most healthy and pathologic processes. Yet many of its properties are poorly…

CompBioMed e-Seminar #22

CompBioMed’s 22nd e-Seminar took place on 17 March 2022 on Tools and techniques for making efficient use of GPUs. The goal of this session was to provide an overview of some of the technologies, tools and techniques available to ensure the efficient use of GPUs for high performance computing. The session was split into two…

CompBioMed e-Seminar #21

CompBioMed’s 21st e-Seminar took place on 22 February 2022 focused on Use of Gaussian Process Emulators in Cardiovascular and Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Sensitivity analysis can be used for the identification of surrogate variables in a computational model. It also finds application in the extraction of the most important features of a model in order to develop…

CompBioMed e-Seminar #20

CompBioMed’s 20th e-seminar took place on 9 December 2021 Introduction to Biomedical Image Registration and the Parallel Framework for Image Registration Biomedical imaging, based on different acquisition modalities (CT, PET, MRI, ultrasound), is a powerful diagnostic tool adopted in many clinical settings. Images of patients captured at different time points and with different modalities may…

CompBioMed e-seminar #19

CompBioMed’s 19th e-seminar took place on 9 November 2021 Biomedical Supercomputing Applications In the first part of the talk, the biomedical context is presented, while the second part is dedicated to parallelisation and performance issues and enhancement. 1st part. Organ level simulations represent both a challenge and an opportunity: the Virtual Patient modelling for precision…

CompBioMed e-Seminar #18

CompBioMed’s 18th e-seminar took place on 6 October 2021 High Performance Containers Containers are a convenient means of encapsulating complex software environments, but can this convenience be realised for parallel research codes? Running such codes costs money, which means that code performance is often tuned to specific supercomputer platforms. Therefore, for containers to be useful…

Research Fellow in Virtual Human Cardiovascular Modelling & Simulation at the Emerging Exascale

Supervisor: Professor P. V. Coveney Closing date: 26 April 2021 We are recruiting for a candidate to join a very active inter-disciplinary group in the Centre for Computational Science and will perform modelling and simulation of the cardiovascular system on the whole human scale. The post-holder will work on scientific applications of HemeLB, a flexible…

CompBioMed joins the LEXIS project Open Call

The CompBioMed Centre of Excellence has joined the Open Call of the project LEXIS, which commenced their further collaboration. Thanks to the LEXIS platform CompBioMed will move data more effectively and safely between HPC centres with the help of integrated HPC, AI, Big Data and Cloud. Further, enabling Edge Computing so that hospitals can exploit…

Scalability post – HemeLB

Each week on the InSilico World and CompBioMed Slack Scalability channel one of our research group outlines the work that they have done to scale their codes. We are happy that 60 experts have already joined this channel and we would like more interaction and discussions taking place on the channel around the codes being described…
