Innopolis University, CERN, Newcastle University and Kazan Federal University held a Meeting on BioDynaMo Project.

The project partners met at Innopolis University in Russia to discuss the main issues of the BioDynaMo project that is focused on using of cloud technologies for designing a prototype able to simulate biological tissue growth, with a particular focus on human brain development. 

Innopolis University, CERN, Newcastle University and Kazan Federal University held a Meeting on BioDynaMo Project.

The prototype will be able to reproduce a full-scale simulation of the human cortex in order to better understand how brain cells communicate with each other and arrange in a complex organism. Such simulations will help scientists to discover the evolution of the human brain and to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of experiments concerning the living human brain.

BioDynaMo is part of CERN openlab’s work on code modernization with partner company Intel. Once the Russian University obtained the status of an official research member of CERN openlab, scientists of Innopolis University Manuel Mazzara and Leonard Johard, started working on the BioDynaMo project. This agreement has opened the door to numerous innovative projects for the University, with BioDynaMo being the first one.

According to Alberto Di Meglio, head of CERN openlab, "Innopolis University has a key focus on collaboration with industry and other research organizations. This fits well with our mission of promoting technological innovation, education, collaboration between research and industry." He noted that the current collaboration with the Russian University is focused on application of information technology in medical research. Di Meglio said: "Knowledge transfer and supporting development of IT solutions to enable top-class research in various fields is a key part of CERN openlab’s strategy. Our collaboration with Innopolis University is important in helping us to achieve this goal".
