The Insigneo Institute is a collaborative initiative between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, where we develop sophisticated computer simulations of human physiology, in health and disease, in order to improve clinical diagnosis and treatment. With a multi-disciplinary membership of over 140 academics and clinicians, our Institute is Europe’s largest centre dedicated to these activities, in the young discipline known as in silico medicine.

Each year in May Insigneo hosts a ‘Showcase’ event that is open to all, where we demonstrate our recent outputs and encourage discussion around a single topic. This year we have chosen Clinical Translation.

The day will feature:

  • Presentations and engaging displays of the high quality research carried out at our Institute;
  • An Industrial Village showcasing in silico medicine’s latest commercial applications;
  • Keynote speeches by renowned experts in clinical translation from medicine and industry;
  • An all-party panel debate on barriers and approaches to widespread adoption of technology;
  • Networking opportunities and one-to-one discussions with funders, academics and clinicians.

We have 230 participants registered this year from across all of healthcare, academic and industry. We have specific opportunities for many categories of visitor:

Funders: We’d like you to take advantage of a no-charge display stand, at which you can promote your funding opportunities and engage with researchers. We would also seek to facilitate one-to-one discussions, and will put at your disposal a number of break out rooms for individual and group discussions. Please just make a note on the registration form.

Clinicians: Understand the potential impact of in silico medicine in your speciality. Our focus on clinical translation provides a unique opportunity to experience how in silico medicine has the potential to support diagnostics, assessments and treatments in your area of medicine. We would actively support you in discussing your diagnostic and treatment challenges, and facilitate meetings on the day with Insigneo research staff and our guest funders. Please just make a note on the registration form.

Patient Groups: Our Institute is a collaboration between academics and clinicians, with a multi-disciplinary membership of over 140, focusing on understanding health and disease. Please come with questions and enthusiasm to discuss your areas of interest with our teams.

Fellow Academics: Come and see how our research can complement your own work, and identify potential collaborations with our modellers, clinicians, physicists, mathematicians and engineers.

Industry Representatives: Our Industrial Village is the place to be. Please reserve a display stand at which to promote your capabilities and discuss informally with our researchers and potential collaborators.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
