The Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine’s Annual Showcase event will be held on 17 May 2019 at the Octagon Centre, in Sheffield, UK. This full day event is an opportunity for members, funding agencies, regulatory agencies, industrial colleagues, and other academic groups in the UK and worldwide to meet once a year and see first-hand the latest innovations in personalised, predictive medicine produced by this Institute.

The Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine is Europe’s largest research institute dedicated entirely to the development, validation, and use of in silico medicine technologies.
But what is In Silico?
About in silico medicine
In silico medicine, also known as ‘computational medicine’, indicates modelling and simulation technologies that directly contribute to the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment planning and execution, and management of disease. In silico medicine technologies provide subject-specific predictions of quantities that are difficult or impossible to measure directly, but that are important to support the medical decisions about that patient. It can be subdivided into three areas:
The Digital Patient – The VPH for the doctor; patient-specific modelling to support medical decisions. See the Discipulus roadmap for more details.
In silico clinical trials – The VPH for the biomedical industry; collections of patient-specific models to augment the preclinical and clinical assessment of new biomedical products; in silico technologies for the reduction, refinement, and partial replacement of animal and human experimentation. See the Avicenna roadmap for more details.
Personal health forecasting – The VPH for the patient/citizen; subject-specific simulations, based on patient data – including those collected by wearable and environmental sensors – that provide advice to individuals affected by conditions requiring self-management or to people at risk of developing disease.
We believe in silico medicine represents a paradigm shift in the sense proposed by philosopher Thomas Kuhn, a ‘fundamental change in the basic concepts and experimental practices of a scientific discipline’.
This is a great way to connect with and grow within your network as an ECR in the Northern Hub, specifically Sheffield. Register today to avoid disappointment.
