NHS at 70 Celebration!

The Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine joined the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust’s NHS’s 70th birthday and International Clinical Trials Day celebrations on Thursday 5 July outside Sheffield Cathedral.

The day included hands-on activities and demos from healthcare organisations across the city, including stands focusing on Sheffield’s contribution the development of medical research and clinical trials.

On the Insigneo stand, Lorenza Angelini and Bart Van Veen provided demonstrations of some of the equipment we use to measure our movements and the activation of our muscles and also the computer models and their underlying principles that we use to simulate the human body and its movement.

The stand also showed the work that we are doing within our EPSRC project Multisim and in collaboration with the NIHR Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre.
