Frontiers of Simulation and Experimentation for Personalised Cardiovascular Management and Treatment conference
31 July 2018
A two-day conference on Frontiers of Simulation and Experimentation for Personalised Cardiovascular Management and Treatment was hosted at UCL last week.
The VPH CaSE conference brought together Early Career Researchers (ECRs) who are currently working at the frontier of cardiovascular research. VPH-CaSE focuses on state-of-the-art developments in personalised cardiovascular support, underpinned by simulation and experimentation.
The conference's focus was on bringing together the brightest, young researchers in the field and galvanising them at this early stage of their careers. The event featured both industry and clinical panels, providing a truly multi-disciplinary and dynamic environment and a perfect opportunity for networking and engagement.
The conference aimed to provide attendees with a platform to showcase their research results and to discuss with experienced scientists, engineers, educators and other young investigators about their latest ideas in cardiovascular engineering for personalised Cardiovascular Management and Treatment. There was also an invitation for the best work from the conference to submit full papers for a special issue of Medical Engineering and Physics from the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and and the new ASME Journal of Engineering and Science in Medical Diagnostics and Therapy.
The conference was organised by Dr Vanessa Diaz with the support and collaboration of UCL Engineering, UCL Mechanical Engineering, UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering, Wellcome/EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS), Leeds Test Objects, Insigneo, Ansys and CERTARA.
