The Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine is a research institute established as a collaborative initiative between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, where they develop sophisticated computer simulations of human physiology, in health and disease, in order to improve clinical diagnosis and treatment. With a multi-disciplinary membership of over 140 academics and clinicians, Insigneo is Europe’s largest centre dedicated to these activities, in the emerging discipline known as in silico medicine.

This year the Insigneo Showcase will feature as keynote speaker Professor Dame Pamela Shaw, Director of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), who will present the research of the BRC and how the application of in silico medicine technologies will contribute to research into interventions for neurodegenerative diseases.
