Henry Sutanto attends Computational Physiology Summer School

Henry Sutanto, a PhD student in the lab, received an opportunity to attend the Simula Summer School in Computational Physiology (SSCP) 2019, which was held by Simula Research Laboratory – University of Oslo and UC San Diego (California). This summer school was fully supported by a Simula Travel Grant (15,000 NOK) and took place in Oslo (2 weeks) and San Diego (1.5 weeks). During the summer, Henry worked together with Ana Maria Sanchez de la Nava (Hospital GU Gregorio Marañón, IiSGM, CIBERCV,Madrid – PI Maria Guillem, PhD) and Savannah Bifulco (University of Washington, Seattle – PI Patrick Boyle PhD) on a project entitled “Machine learning tools to uncover ischemic markers in a population of image-based virtual hearts”. This summer project was supervised by three outstanding Simula supervisors: Valeriya Naumova, PhD; Hermenegild Arevalo, PhD and Per Magne Florvaag, and was presented in UC San Diego in August 2019. Overall, their summer project is the first to employ machine learning on cardiac fibrosis detection in patient-specific virtual hearts.
