"Multi-scale Biological Modalities for Physiological Human Articulation"

Period: October 2011 - September 2015
Type: European Research
Status: Completed


The goal of Multiscale Biological modalities for physiological human articulation (MultiScaleHuman) is to research by training a body of early stage researchers (ESR) and experienced researchers (ER) in the creation of a multi-scale biological data visualization and knowledge management system for improved understanding, diagnosis and treatment of physiological human articulation. MultiScaleHuman will narrow its ambitious research towards a very important and challenging healthcare problem of MSD and related disorders.
