New edition of the Barcelona VPH Summer School next June 2020

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to inform you that the 5th VPH Summer School will be held in Barcelona, Spain, on June 8-12, 2020. This new edition focuses on Tackling Complexity in Health & Medicine.

The VPH Summer School series is co-organized by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute (VPHi). It provides junior engineers, early researchers and medical doctors with a complete overview of state-of-the-art Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) research for In Silico Medicine, following a complete pipeline from basic science and clinical needs, to model application.

The training includes 15 morning lectures plus one honorary VPH lecture, given by leading international researchers. Speakers details are available here.

The key methodological and technological concepts are enriched during the whole week by six afternoon hands-on sessions in multiscale modelling, physiological modelling, computational systems biology and machine learning that stand for 16+ hours of transversal training in in silico medicine technologies, under the supervision of expert researchers. Hands-on details are available here.

The last afternoon of the VPH Summer School will host a round table co-organized with QUAES, gathering patients, physicians, researchers and public authority representatives to discuss on In silico Medicine and new medical technologies for the society: Awareness, expectations and effective capacity.

Daily scientific discussions and cross-dissemination are further supported by the afternoon poster sessions.

Best regards,

Jérôme Noailly, on behalf of the Organising Committee.
