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...
