CompBioMed will be at the Le Studium Conference on “Cardiovascular Modelling: Basic Science to Clinical Translation” to be held in Tours (France) on 13th and 14th December 2022.
The symposium is being organised, managed and sponsored by the Le Studium Institute for Advanced Studies – Loire Valley and the INSERM Unit iBrain Imagerie et Cerveau.
Neurological and cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death globally. The use of computer models to simulate the functioning of the human body is viewed increasingly as one of the most promising tools to embrace and better understand the complexity of human pathophysiology, and therefore improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease. A significant motivating factor for deployment of biomedical codes in clinical management of cardiovascular disease is the development of human digital twins. Such models would allow personalised guidance for healthcare, disease diagnosis and treatment, and wellbeing for specific individuals.
The symposium will focus on characterization of blood flows using modelling as well as imaging tools (e.g., ultrasound) and its links to vessel wall mechanics and cardiovascular disease. This is an area that sees participation and expertise from different fields including vascular biology, fluid mechanics, computer science, medicine, but also imaging, medical device and software certification and regulation for translation into healthcare. The scientific literature in this field offers a rich spectrum of research, from basic science focusing on detailed mathematical, numerical and experimental descriptions of vascular pathophysiology, to applied research where similar approaches are used to test clinical hypotheses. The impact of such a tremendous, cross-disciplinary effort is starting to emerge, with such approaches starting to have an impact on healthcare. The event will aim to promote discussion and shine light on current and emerging research trends in the computational and experimental characterization and role of cardiovascular blood flows, arterial and venous wall mechanics, its correlation with vascular disease, with a specific emphasis on their application to unsolved clinical challenges and translation into healthcare.
Details of CompBioMed’s involvement at the conference will be described in due course.
