THROMBUS "A quantitative model of thrombosis in intracranial aneurysms", is a collaborative VPH project funded by the European Commission in the Seventh Framework Programme in biomedical research field. The Project, started on February 1st 2011, is now at Mid-term.

A quantitative model of thrombosis in intracranial aneurysms
The objective of THROMBUS project is to conceptualize a sophisticated biological model of spontaneous or stent-induced thrombosis within Intracranial Aneurysms. In consequence, the crucial concerns are the building of a realistic scenario of the thrombosis and its associated modelling, the implementation of the code of numerical simulation based on the Lattice Boltzmann method.
Reinforcement of collaborations
The consortium strengthens collaborations with biological laboratories, and hospitals to win the challenges of Thrombus. Concerning the biology, a collaboration has been initiated with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering Harvard-MIT Biomedical Engineering - Center - Edelman Laboratory (Boston USA) and fruitful exchanges are established with the ‘Laboratoire Cellules Circulantes Rares Humaines - Plateforme LCCRH’ (Montpellier France). Several collaborations with neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists are running (Finland, Germany, Switzerland, France...). As an example, The University Medicine Berlin - La Charité Hospital (Berlin Germany) is the last collaboration linked to Thrombus.

Latest important activities of communication
Thrombus partners aim to communicate on the project goals and achievements to a varied audience and to present latest research results each time it is possible.
Thus, we have been involved in many events in the latest months:
