CompBioMed Webinar #3

CompBioMed’s third webinar took place on 19th March 2018, 11am GMT/12pm CET and is now available to watch if you missed it, or would like to view it again.

Lattice Boltzmann method for CompBioMed (incl. Palabos)

The webinar provides a general introduction to the lattice Boltzmann method for computational fluid dynamics, and shows how this tool is used efficiently for biomedical applications. The provided examples include a vertebroplasty and a hemodynamics solver,both based on the open-source library Palabos. The former simulates a cement injection process in vertebroplasty, and the latter the dynamics of blood flow after the insertion of a flow diverter in an artery with an aneurysm. Both tools work with patient-specific data and are intended as support tools for medical decision making. No prior knowledge in computational fluid dynamics or the lattice Boltzmann method is required.
This webinar is delivered by the Scientific and Parallel Computing Lab, which is part of the Computer Science Department of the University of Geneva, and is directed by Prof. Bastien Chopard. The two main axes of research are Complex Systems and Bioinformatics.

Dr Jonas Latt (Head of Research at the University of Geneva)

This webinar series is run in collaboration with the VPH Institute
