DescriptionComputer models and HPC simulations are becoming a very important approach to assist clinicans in treating diseases and devising new therapies. The goal of this minisymposium is to investigate several challenges associated with this approach. We will propose a selection of talks inspired by the problems raised in the H2020 project INSIST, for instance the estimation of success scores of a medical intervention through modeling (e.g. thrombolysis and thrombectomy processes in the treatment of a stroke, the impact of the lack of oxygen in the brain), and the way to build a virtual population of patients to propose new treatments and avoid in-vivo and in-vitro experiments. The problem of validation and uncertainty quantification of the numerical models will also be considered.
