The mathematical modelling of disease progression is an essential part of several projects of the Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI), namely AETIONOMY, EPAD, RADAR-AD; and it is subject of an entire work package in the European H2020 project VirtualBrainCloud.
The joint interest in mathematical modelling of disease progression prompted us to come together for a first workshop on disease progression modelling. At the invitation of Martin Hofmann-Apitius of the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing (SCAI), leading scientists in the field met for two days in Bonn (Germany) on 4 and 5 April to exchange ideas and to report on their strategies for modelling disease progression in neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric conditions. It was a great experience and a very productive workshop.
We are pleased that the website about disease progression models is now online. It contains videos and presentations of the first disease progression modelling workshop that took place in Bonn. Have a look here: http://www.diseaseprogressionmodels.eu/
Please note that the next workshop will take place in Paris (France) in spring 2020. More information will follow in due time. Stay tuned!
