Javier Benítez Ortiz, president of the Quaes Foundation.
The Chair of the Quaes Foundation at Pompeu Fabra University Barcelona organizes next Friday, June 11, the round table “In silico Medicine and new medical technologies for society: Awareness, expectations and effective capacity”, which will bring together doctors, researchers, patients and representatives of the public powers to discuss the In silico medicine (by computer) and new medical technologies for society.
Following in the footsteps of other pioneering industries in the use of modeling in engineering, the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields have begun to widely adopt numerical modeling and simulation to accelerate the development processes of innovative products and solutions, safer and with better cost control. In this way, the world of medical experimentation by computer (in silico) is consolidating itself as way to complement and accelerate investigative techniques and technological and clinical transfers of these.
The round table will address capabilities and the future of research, the expectations of the business world and the needs of the health system. The meeting point between these three aspects and how this meeting relates to new regulatory needs will be discussed. It will also consider how in silico medicine technologies can help proactivity on the part of patients in managing your own health.
The event, which will be the culmination of the 5th edition of the summer school VPV (Virtual Physiological Human) of the HPV Institute and Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), may follow online for free and you will benefit from a service of simultaneous English-Spanish translation.
