Dr. Gizzi is one of the organizers of the
School on Imaging, Modeling and Simulation in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology
to be held from 24th to 28th of February 2020 in Rome.
For full details, refer to the school webpage
The School aims at delivering an Advanced Training Program in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology merging complementary bits of knowledge from different fields. Lecturers are renowned expert scientists from multidisciplinary fields, such as Biomedical Imaging, Theoretical Biology and Biomechanics, Computational Mechanics and in-silico biomechanical analyses for the Clinical Practice. Classes will be focused on state-of-the-art problems of biomedical research, developing multidisciplinary learning skills. Basic concepts of interdisciplinary knowledge will be opened to the critical thinking of Biomechanics and Mechanobiology applications. Emphasis will be put on scientific and technological challenges able to foster an effective translation towards the clinical world.
The School will offer a broad context of scientific meeting in which it will be possible to discuss with Lecturers, other students and researchers. It is intended to create the best conditions for future synergic and multidisciplinary cooperation. Two social and cultural activities will be organized where students will meet lecturers in an informal context. The expected impact of the School is the creation of an international network on Theoretical and Applied Biomechanics & Mechanobiology in which the young participants can get access to a higher educational level and find their research line on a robust epistemological framework. New synergies are expected to face the urgent challenges connected with healthcare social problems and sustainability through integrated multidisciplinary approaches.
