Simulation, Imaging and Modelling for Biomedical Systems
SIMBIOsys is part of the research unit BCN Medtech, within the Department of Information and Communication Technologies of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona. The group was established in October 2013 by Prof. Miguel A. González Ballester (ICREA Professor) and Prof. Gemma Piella Fenoy (Professor at UPF).
SIMBIOsys aims to consolidate as one of the leading research groups in medical image analysis, computer-assisted surgery and computational biomechanics, through an integrative research activity on mathematical and computational models, algorithms and systems for computer-aided diagnosis and treatment.
Our research group works closely with industrial and clinical partners, offering a framework to propose and develop biomedical applications and new demonstrative prototypes towards their final application in clinical routine.
