Workshop: "How to build your digital human twin?"

When: 27/02/2020 - 28/02/2020
Where: Empa St. Gallen - Switzerland
Registration deadline: 16 February 2020

Human avatars, or digital twins, of the human body and its organs are being developed to steer in-silico the medical therapies of the future. The large hype in this field makes that many digital human twins with different complexity and accuracy are surfacing. This rapidly evolving field will challenge us to keep guaranteeing the quality and reliability of the used models and simulations, to avoid that the trust in such digital tools is lost. This need is even pushing governmental organizations, including the FDA, to develop a regulatory framework in this respect.

The scope of this workshop is to make you walk away with a proper knowledge of the different building blocks of such digital avatars, from the nanoscale to the human scale, and with the best practices for reliable modeling and simulation. This workshop aims thereby to safeguard the trust and reliability of this immense technological opportunity for improving the future of precision healthcare.

In these two days, medical applications will be targeted such as transdermal drug delivery, skin burns, hyperthermic oncology, wound dressings and functionalized medical membranes for controlled release of active compounds.

Workshop goals:

  • you advance in your understanding of digital twins for health-tech
  • you can incite new collaborations in this fieldyou contribute in defining the future roadmaps for digital twins in healthcare

The targeted topics are:

  • Building blocks and types of human avatars
  • Digital twins for personalized, in-silico therapy
  • Multiphysics modeling for digital twins
  • Multiscale modeling for digital twins
  • Wearables for body monitoring
  • Biomedical imaging technologies
  • Next generation drug delivery devices

This workshop will host an interdisciplinary group of materials scientists, engineers, biochemists, medical doctors and data scientists. Interactions will be stimulated by invited talks of leading experts, pitches of participating scientists, a poster session, a hands-on workshop and a lot of coffee breaks.
