International School on In Silico Trials

international school on in silico trials save the date

Three-day intensive school for decision-makers in medical industries, research hospitals, contract research organizations, regulatory agencies and notified bodies


In the past few years it became possible, in some cases, to provide evidences of safety and efficacy for new medical products using modeling and simulation: in silico methods. This could be a game changer, but it is also a disruptive innovation that may require some changes in the business model of companies.


The International School on In Silico Trials will offer a systematic, non- technical review of the strengths and weaknesses of in silico trials technologies.
The participants will be guided in the development of a better and deeper understanding of the threats and opportunities that this unprecedented technology presents, with the goal to enable more informed decision- making on the adoption of such innovations.


The school is organized as a SWOT analysis. After an introduction from the Chair, Prof Viceconti, five experts will evaluate strengths and weaknesses of the four most popular classes of modeling methods, including the use of high-performance computing. Then, six specialists will provide an overview of the opportunities that in silico trials technologies offer in some of the most important classes of diseases.
Lastly, the threats posed by the complex regulatory landscape will be analyzed and balanced in a vision of the possible futures for the biomedical industry in the age of in silico trials.
