For the first time the VPHi assigned a €500 prize for the best work submitted for the VPH2018 conference by a VPHi PhD Student.
The outcome of the best VPHi student award competition was announced at the gala dinner of the VPH2018 conference in Zaragoza. The award committee, chaired by Jerome Noailly (UPF) from the VPHi student committee, and composed by both academia and hospital representatives, based their evaluation on the following criteria:
After having carefully evaluated their presentations at the conference, the committee awarded Giulia Luraghi for her outstanding work titled: "A patient-specific fluid-structure interaction analysis of TAVI procedure".
"I'm really proud to have received the award! It was my first experience in a VPH conference. I found it really interesting and effective, with many research fields, clinical applications and also an insight into the industry scenario. I would like to thank the award committee and my supervisors Prof. Francesco Migliavacca and Prof. José Félix Rodriguez Matas." says Giulia
Many congratulations from the VPHi community!
