Citizen scientists needed to map 3D scans to solve puzzle of bird bill evolution

Citizen scientists from across the globe are needed to help a team of University of Sheffield researchers map 3D scans of the bills of every living species of bird in the world. Dr Gavin Thomas, of the University’s Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, and his research group have embarked on the task of scanning the bills of 10,000 species to build the most compre...

The MultiSim Modelathon 24th – 26th August 2015

musculoskeletal, disorders, hip joint, MultiSIm
We have a limited number of spaces left for the MultiSim Modelathon - are you up to the challenge? The MultiSim Modelathon is based on the concept of a hackathon event where different teams work on a challenging problem to ‘hack’ a computer code. Here there is no ‘hacking’ but ‘modelling’. Instead the teams will compete to solve a challenging multiscale biomechanic...

Professor Damien Lacroix takes MultiSim Research to Japan

On Monday 23rd February 2015 MultiSim director, Professor Damien Lacroix, embarked on a 5 month visit to Kyoto, Japan, on to work alongside Professor Taiji Adachi. The trip will be highly beneficial for MultiSim research as it will enable Professor Lacroix to study multi-scale methods to further bridge the scale between cellular up to whole organism level. Professor Taij...
