News & Events

The data coming from the INSIST virtual population (recently marked as a new Innovation by the EU Innovation radar; “Computational tools to generate virtual populations of stroke patients”) have been used in the Digital Health Technologies hackathon organized by TNO, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research,  on 20-22 January 2021. The use of this data allowed technical specialists to use realistic demographic population descriptives without having access of privacy sensitive patient data. This use of the results coming from the virtual population highlights its value for various end users/customers.

More INSIST in the news..

New research from our INSIST consortium suggests that computer simulations could be used to develop more efficient treatments for stroke patients.

List of awardees

 

The INSIST consortium is the result of a truly multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial effort. It is headed by an interventional neuroradiologist and combines the knowledge of multiple experts in computational science, biology, biophysics, biomedical engineering, epidemiology, and radiological, neurological, and cardiovascular clinical research. The crucial involvement of academic and large teaching hospitals will secure access to patient data and clinical expertise. This will ensure that the in silico tools resulting from this project have a direct impact in the clinic. All the relevant end users (neurologists and intervention radiologists, as well as device- and pharma industry) are member of the INSIST consortium and involved in the entire process to ensure a successful and relevant development of the in silico tools. 

 

At the kick-off meeting we organised a minisymposium; Basic Overview of Acute Ischemic Stroke, current state of art, running trials where the main clinicians involved in INSIST presented.
