DescriptionGiven the prevalence of cardiovascular disease, major efforts are underway to understand cardiac function, design effective treatments, and accelerate the approval process. However, the lack of realistic simulation models and adequate computational resources has limited the use of in-silico methods to predict in-vivo drug or device performance. In response, Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA formed the Living Heart Project whose regulatory, research, industry and clinical members are collaborating to develop high fidelity multiphysics and multiscale models of the human heart and leveraging cloud computing. We present progress on this project to date.
