iSi Health - KU Leuven Institute has kicked off

iSi Health is a brand new, interdisciplinary institute at KU Leuven aiming to bring physics-based modelling from bench- to bed-side.

iSi Health is a brand new, interdisciplinary institute aiming to bring physics-based modelling from bench- to bed-side by amplifying interdisciplinary research initiatives of KU Leuven and UZ Leuven researchers to the development and implementation of multi-scale, physics-based modeling approaches for personalized health. As such, the institute will accelerate the adoption of in silico medicine and in particular leverage and prepare the integration of in silico medical device testing, drug performance evaluation and in silico clinical trials. ISi Health has the explicit ambition to position KU Leuven and UZ Leuven at the forefront of this paradigm shift and take a leading role in conceptualising this healthcare of the future.

With iSi Health, a platform for interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and expertise will be provided building across research domains and groups, optimally preparing for the ‘to be expected’ impact of in silico techniques in the medical domain.

In order to achieve this mission, different actions are identified:

  • Bring together the significant yet fragmented community of researchers at KU Leuven and UZ Leuven that are already contributing to this field and expressed their interest in participating;
  • Provide a platform for interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and facilitate expertise building across research domains and groups,
  • Take an internationally leading role ineffective health data integration solutions through provision of verified and validated data-driven and physics-based computational tools for healthcare,
  • Launch concerted research activities on development approval, acceptance, socioeconomic impact and legal integration of in silico techniques, and
  • Prepare blue-prints for educational action programmes, creating the workforce of the future that holds essential multi-disciplinary skills from a unique background of integrated biomedical, medical and engineering expertise.
