Leading European biobank establishes collaborative ties with computational physiology

VPH Institute publishes press release

In conjunction with the Virtual Physiological Human 2014 conference, September 9-12, in Trondheim, Norway, the VPH (Virtual Physiological Human) Institute held a satellite meeting with the HUNT Research Centre (HRC) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The symposium addressed to which degree computational physiology in the broad sense may become an unprecedented guide for identifying which new phenotypic data (and thus which new phenotyping technologies) should be selected in the context of biobanks and large population-based studies. The symposium concluded that HRC and VPHi should together take on the role of pioneering the formulation of a white paper on how computational physiology should become an integral part of human biobank concept development.
