Focus of our Research

The two central ideas that the Frontier Engineering multi-scale project focus on are: a)      The development of a novel multi-scale model of the musculoskeletal system that describes the mechanobiological processes from the whole body (neuromuscular control and body dynamics) down to the cellular level (bone remodelling and mechanosensing); b)      The creation of a mult...

Our vision

The vision of the MultiSim programme is to develop a modelling framework 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. This project aims to create a new generation of predictive models capable of handling complex mul...
