'The Virtual Human' IMAX event at the Science Museum Lates
Alfons Hoekstra participated in the London Science Museum IMAX event on September 27th 2017 dedicated to the virtual human. This event was part of the Science Museum Lates series.
The hour-long feature described recreating a human being in silico, including an IMAX video composited on the Marenostrum supercomputer. The video showed stunning simulations on aspects of computational biomedicine using supercomputers, including Hemocell based virtual blood simulations, with impresive visualisations created by Paul Melis from SURFsara. Alfons Hoekstra also delivered a short presentation on virtual blood and more. This event was organized by the CompBioMed project, a Centre of Excellence in Computational Biomedicine, to nurture and promote the uptake and exploitation of high performance computing within the biomedical modelling community.
