It was a good experience being at this year’s Modelathon competition. We worked hard to solve our assigned problem by integrating different modelling approaches coming from musculoskeletal, finite element analysis and haemodynamic fields. The event was very well organised. The support and guidance given by software experts from industry and Insigneo was very helpful. If you work with computational models, the Modelathon is a very interesting challenge. It makes us think in a broader way, especially how things connect and affect, from the body to the tissue scale which may give us more confidence to start developing more multidisciplinary research projects. It is something that I would recommend to all of my friends in the multi-scale research community.
