VR labs for hands on training
The state-of-the-art facilities will enable undergraduate and postgraduate bioengineering students to acquire key skills for designing medical devices and procedures. They can now use a virtual 3D human body to experience biomechanical performance and function and integrate this information into pre-op planning. As part of technology-driven courses, 30 students benefit from 50 hours of intensive hands-on training in the virtual reality labs, which are also open to all final-year mechanical engineering students and MsC students (350 in total).
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Adopted by all United Nations Member States, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. La Fondation Dassault Systèmes project at Sheffield University's Insigneo Institute UK supports three of these goals:
Dassault Systèmes La Fondation is proud to support Sheffield University Insigneo Institute
Sheffield University's Insigneo Institute for in silico medicine (UK) is Europe's largest research institute dedicated entirely to the development, validation, and use of in silico medicine technologies (using computer modeling and simulation to conduct research or clinical trials). Insigneo performs cutting-edge research in areas of fundamental and applied biomedical modeling, imaging and informatics in order to achieve a transformational impact on healthcare.
