An introduction to our research


Focused on the human musculoskeletal system but designed as a generic platform to address other engineering challenges that involve multi-scale modelling, unobservable states and variables and uncertainty. Find out more


Background

MultiSim is a £6.7 million EPSRC Frontier Engineering Award project based  at the University of Sheffield's Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine. This five year multidisciplinary project started on 1st September 2013, and extended until 1st September 2021 with Progression Grant funding, involving academics from the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Healthcare.

Our goals and aspirations

Dr Enrico Dall'Ara, MultiSim Work Package Leader
“The goal of Multisim is to combine experimental, imaging and computational approaches to improve current preclinical and clinical assessment of musculoskeletal diseases and to optimise treatments for patients”
Professor Claudia Mazzà , Director of MultiSim
“MultiSim wants to bring the most advanced engineering techniques to the service of the patient by working on clinically-ready solutions for the personalisation of healthcare.”
