About this event

We are delighted to invite you to an evening lecture jointly organised by the Institution of Engineering Technology, Institution of Mechanical Engineers (Biomedical Engineering Association (BmEA), and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.
The keynote speaker Marco Viceconti, Executive Director, INSIGNEO institute for in silico medicine will be speaking on “Predictive Medicine: The Role of Subject-Specific Modelling and Simulation in Healthcare”.

Marco Viceconti holds the chair of Biomechanics at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Sheffield, UK, and serves as Executive Director of the Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine (www.insigneo.org), a joint initiative of the University of Sheffield and the Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. He is also professor associate in the department of Oncology and Metabolism. Prof Viceconti is an expert of musculoskeletal biomechanics in general, and in particular in the use of subject-specific modelling to support the medical decision. He is one of the key figures in the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) community: he is the President of the VPH Institute, an international no-profit organisation that coordinates this research community, and has recently concluded the coordination of the Avicenna action, which road-mapped the emerging topic of “in silico clinical trials”, where subject-specific modelling is used in the development and assessment of biomedical products.
