Personalized Blood Flow Modeling Benefits from Virtual Reality Interface

Researchers at Duke University have developed a fluid dynamics simulator that can model blood flow within the body, including the motion of individual blood cells. The researchers hope that the system could eventually be used by clinicians to model blood flow for individual patients and help with treatment decisions, such as stent placement. By testing… Read More »

Resource: Join us for Virtual Rounds at the Center for Women’s Mental Health on Wednesdays

As our faculty at the Center for Women’s Mental Health (CWMH) have gone fully remote with respect to clinical and research activity, we have managed to stay connected these last three weeks with “virtual rounds”.  For over 25 years, our group has met on Wednesdays at midday to discuss clinical cases we have seen across… Read More »

‘Virtual Pharmacology’ Yields Unprecedented Biological Clock Breakthrough – UCSF News Services

New drugs to treat circadian rhythm disturbances like jet lag, insomnia and shift work-associated sleep disorders may be on the horizon thanks to an unprecedented breakthrough made possible by ultra-large-scale “virtual pharmacology,” a cutting-edge technique that allows scientists to rapidly test hundreds of millions of molecules in computer simulations to identify those with the greatest… Read More »
