Our goals and aspirations

Professor Marco Viceconti, Executive Director of Insigneo
“The long term vision of in silico medicine will not be fulfilled without a drastic improvement to our ability to model living organisms from the molecule to the whole body. MultiSim research program represents a quantum leap in this direction.”
Professor Damien Lacroix, 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.”
