The MultiSim Modelathon is almost here!

There are only 10 days until the MultiSim Modelathon kicks off! Are you up to the challenge? Based on the concept of a 'hackathon', teams will compete in a 3 day ‘modelling’ event. The 3 challenges will be based on the subject of multiscale biomechanics within the musculoskeletal system and teams will have access to state-of-the-art techniques and software to help th...
