SofTMech is a large and established Centre of Mathematics for Healthcare, with primary support from the EPSRC since 2016. Our Centre consists of multiple academic, clinical and industrial partners and combines extensive expertise in mathematical, statistical and computational modelling of cardiac and cancer physiology and disease. We have developed a range of novel mulltiscale mathematical models and statistical inference techniques applicable to heart conditions, diseases, cancer and beyond, including patient-specific medical device optimisation and modelling diseases in the human retina. Details of our grants, funding opportunities and partners are available from the menu

23 AugAs part of the ARCADIA festival SofTMech presented the CardiARC Zone on the 17th September 12.00 - 15.00 in the new Advanced Research Centre at the University of Glasgow.(ARC). We ran some fun competitions to test knowledge of the heart. Our Virtual Reality (VR) tours of the heart in the ARC's VR suite proved very popular and we we were sold out; full report....
