15th POP User Webinar - Addressing Biomedical Challenges with High Performance Computing

Friday, May 15, 2020

CompBioMed is a European Commission H2020 funded Centre of Excellence focused on the use and development of computational methods for biomedical applications. Since commencing in 2016, the CompBioMed consortium of academic institutions, supercomputing centres and industrial partners have broken new ground in a diverse range of applications in the domain of computational biomedicine. These have been conducted with a particular interest in the fields of cardiovascular simulation, molecular medicine and neuro-musculoskeletal analysis. Collaborations by members of the consortium have led to studies being conducted on some of the latest supercomputing facilities throughout Europe and America.

This webinar outlined some of CompBioMed's achievements on HPC infrastructure in these fields of computational biomedicine. The consortium's efforts to broaden the capability of HPC use within the biomedical community was discussed. Finally, it highlighted the results of previous interactions between the CompBioMed and POP CoEs and possible avenues for future collaboration.

The presentation slides are also available here.
