The fifth training activity took place in London from the 19th to the 20th of July, 2018. It was hosted by the University College London.
Within this training activity, VPH-CaSE organised the “Frontiers of Simulation and Experimentation for Personalised Cardiovascular Management and Treatment conference”, which aimed to bring together young researchers working at the frontier of cardiovascular research. This conference provided early stage researchers with a platform to showcase their results and to discuss with experienced scientists, engineers, educators and other young investigators about the latest ideas in cardiovascular engineering for personalised Cardiovascular Management and Treatment.
The focus of the Conference was on research working towards translation of the tools, methods and approaches presented in the context of cardiovascular disease. It provided a truly multi-disciplinary and dynamic environment with both Industrial and Clinical participants
The best work of the Conference will be invited to submit full papers for a special issue in the reputed journal
A plenary industry career session was held on Thursday to discuss career progression for early researchers. Evangelos Emmanouil from Cambridge Consultants, Adrian Walker from Leeds Test Object Ltd and Cesar Pichardo from Certara led the session.
There were a number of awards for: Best experimental work, best simulation work -heart valves, coronaries, cardiac function and Best simulation work – vascular.
