VPH-France

This is the Wiki for the Virtual Physiological Human in France

  • Contact/Coordinator: S. Randall Thomas <stephen-randall.thomas at u-psud.fr>

The VPH-France network is one of the RNSC(external link) thematic networks(external link).

If you are interested in joining the network, please register here(external link) with the RNSC and contact the coordinator, Randy Thomas.

 


Last EVENT: The Second VPH-France meeting/workshop was held at L'ISC-PIF, 57-59 rue Lhomond, Paris on November 21, 2013. See the linked webpage for the program. For more information, please contact the VPH-France coordinator, Randy Thomas.

 

Significant Dates for VPH-France

21 November 2013: Second VPH-France meeting/workshop, in Paris
30 November 2012: First VPH-France meeting/workshop, in Paris
26-27 Nov. 2012: Second Consultation Meeting of the DISCIPULUS Roadmap project in Barcelona <http://secondconsultationmeeting.eventbrite.co.uk/|LINK>
2 December 2011: VPH-France accepted as an RNSC(external link) thematic network(external link).
27 September 2011: This wiki was created to serve the VPH-France network. This network is open to all those who participate in Physiome or VPH (Virtual Physiological Human) activities in France (or their collaborators elsewhere).

 

Overview/Goals

 
The international Physiome was initiated at the 1997 IUPS meeting in Saint Petersburg and has now become a key priority of the IUPS (International Union of Physiological Sciences). Following on the EU Roadmap project STEP, the Eu opened a number of calls under the VPH, or Virtual Physiological Human(external link), which is now the European face of the international Physiome community. In France, a number of laboratories participate in this effort and the purpose of the present network is simply to give the French VPH/Physiome a rallying point.

To quote the VPH-NoE website(external link): "The VPH NoE is a project which aims to help support and progress European research in biomedical modelling and simulation of the human body. This will improve our ability to predict, diagnose and treat disease, and have a dramatic impact on the future of healthcare, the pharmaceutical and medical device industries."

Activities

Many of the members of the VPH-France network have participated in (and helped coordinate):

  • ICT-Bio 2008 (Brussels), 2009 (International VPH/Physiome-related event organized by the European Commission)
  • annual meetings of the VPH-NoE, which have been held in Brussels, and Barcelona
  • VPH-NoE Workshops held in Paris (2008), Cambridge (2009, 2010, 2011), London (UCL in 2009)
  • VPH Study Groups (Barcelona 2010)
  • Journée VPH organized by the GdR STIC-Santé (2009)
  • and of course working meetings of the various VPH projects in which the various laboratories are involved.
