Congratulations to the Computational Horizons in Cancer (CHIC) project which recently concluded and received an ‘excellent’ in the EU review meeting. A fantastic culmination of three years’ hard work from the team!
The CHIC project aimed at advancing in silico medicine through the paradigm of in silico oncology in the following aspects:
- Fundamental (Basic) Science (development of highly innovative clinically driven and oriented complex hypermodels and Oncosimulators by different modelling groups)
- Information Technology (semantic description of cancer models and hypermodels, development of a secure technological infrastructure and tools and services supporting the semi-automatic accessibility, execution and reusability of models as well as the building of hypermodels)
- Clinical Medicine (clinical drive and relevance of hypermodel building, clinical adaptation and partial clinical validation of hypermodels and Oncosimulators).
