On Friday 17 May 2019 the Insigneo Institute welcomed over 200 delegates, including academics, clinicians, industry and funding bodies, to its annual Showcase event at the University of Sheffield’s Octagon Centre.
One of our supporting members, 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. Its goals is to 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 150 academics and clinicians, Insigneo is Europe’s largest centre dedicated to these activities, in the emerging discipline known as in silico medicine.
The Insigneo Showcase provides an opportunity once a year to meet up and see first-hand the latest innovations in personalised, predictive medicine produced by the institute.
For the occasion our Executive Director, Professor Liesbet Geris, provided an inspiring talk entitled ‘From data to knowledge using in silico technologies: examples from regenerative medicine’.
The morning session was dedicated to Early Career Researchers who delivered power pitch presentations giving an insight into the broader range of the institute’s research.
The afternoon session was divided into two themes with talks from members in the faculties of Engineering; Medicine, Dentistry and Health; and Science:
Once again a very successful event and a great opportunity to showcase the latest development in in silico medicine.
