VPH-Share: Virtual Physiological Human: Sharing for Healthcare - A Research environment
FP7 Program, IST-269978, 10M€
VPH-Share aimed to build the collaborative computing environment in which Virtual Physiological Human practitioners will work together, to develop new medical simulation software. Central for this environment is the sharing of information - tools, models and data - between reseachers and clinicians, helping them to work efficiently towards building a complete model of the human body, so allowing its investigation as a single complex system.
In VPH-Share I was responsible of the @neurIST workflow and worked in the development of missing data inference algorithms for databases containing Virtual Physiological Human descriptors.
DISCIPULUS: Digitally Integrated Scientific Data for Patients and Populations in User-Specific Simulations
FP7 Program, CSA-288143
The vision of DISCIPULUS was to identify key steps towards realising the Digital Patient, which is a new paradigm in personalised medicine, across the whole healthcare system by focusing on the needs of clinical practitioners and healthcare professionals, biomedical and clinical researchers. This vision will be achieved through comprehensive solutions that involve advanced modelling and simulation tools, data acquisition and data management and advanced user interfaces. All this will enable the clinical and industrial translation of the Digital Patient.
In DISCIPULUS I participated in the writing of the Digital Patient Roadmap , and acted as overall editor of the chapter dedicated to the Mathematical Modelling for the Digital Patient (together with Pietro Liò).
euHeart: integrated cardiac care using patient-specific cardiovascular modelling
This European research initiative targeted the personalized diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease (e.g. cardiac arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, heart failure).
In this project I contributed with my experience in the development of VPH scientific workflows in scientific environments.
VPH-NoE: Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence
This projecte aimed to help support and progress European research in biomedical modelling and simulation of the human body. This will improve our ability to predict, diagnose and treat disease, and have a dramatic impact on the future of healthcare, the pharmaceutical and medical device industries.
In this Network of Excellence I participated in the creation of the VPH toolkit and in the development of a proposal of mathematical modelling of diseases using as an exemplar the @neurIST computational modelling tool chain.
@neurIST: Integrated Biomedical Informatics for the Management of Cerebral Aneurysms
FP6 Program, IST-2004-027703, 12M€
@neurIST focussed on cerebral aneurysms and aimed to provide an integrated decision support system to assess the risk of aneurysm rupture in patients and to optimize their treatments.
In @neurIST I worked in the development of an integrative software tool chain able to extract sophisticated descriptors from routinely acquired medical images. I concentrated on the segmentation of medical images, the extraction of morphological descriptors, the quantification of cerebral aneurysm motion and pulsation, the quantification of cerebral aneurysm blood flow, and the simulation of virtual treatments (coiling and stenting).
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
I teach both modules in Semester 2.
