More information Presentation VHEART
The present Spanish Network of Research in Cardiac Computational Modeling has as its mission to promote collaboration between different Spanish groups with extensive experience in the field of cardiac computer modeling, with the general objective of facilitating and accelerating the development, implementation and application of computational models in biomedical research.
It is a multidisciplinary network in which its members investigate the heart from different points of view: electrophysiological, biomechanical or cardiovascular, together with experts in numerical methods and high-performance computing. The network is made up of internationally consolidated groups and will enhance the international impact of Spanish science in this area.
To achieve these objectives, a series of actions have been designed to promote joint activities, such as participation in projects or scientific publications, and to attract young talent. The aim is to create discussion forums and increase contact with doctors and companies in the sector, through the organization of specific seminars. The network aims to facilitate the use of computer models in the daily clinic, facilitating the design of personalized therapies more effective and safe.
