Home PageNMS Physiome is a research project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) to promote a more organic cooperation in the development of Predictive, Personalised and Integrative musculoskeletal medicine.
- Predictive means that we should answer clinical questions not with indirect statistical evidence, but with direct predictions made using physics-based models.
- Personalised means there is a possibility to develop predictive models that are designed to maximise the likelihood of the prediction for a particular patient, based on the available patient data.
- Integrative means that, whenever necessary, sub-models describing processes occurring at different temporal or dimensional scales should be composed into a hypermodel that describes all systemic interactions across scales (body, organ, tissue, cell, and molecule).
The project, which is now concluded, run from 01/01/2010 to 30/06/2013.
NMS Physiome primary aim was to integrate communities, technologies and services developed in two large research projects:
- VPHOP (Osteoporotic Virtual Physiological Human) funded by the European Commission,
- SIMBIOS (Center for Physics-based Simulation of Biological Structures) funded by the US National Institute of Health.
