Supercomputer-based virtual humans: the future of medicine NOW
Mariano Vázquez, ELEM Biotech & Barcelona Supercomputing Center
In this talk we are going to address the potential of supercomputer-based virtual humans for the biomedical realm. Virtual Humans are computational “avatars” of a patient, which combines data with a mathematical model which are used to predict (as opposed to measure with experiments) some quantities of interest, under a context of use and used to support medical decisions. We will show examples of Populations of Virtual Humans used as cohorts for in-silico clinical trials to optimize drug or devise-based therapies.
Our examples are mostly of the cardiovascular and respiratory domains.
