PerMedCoE webinar: Introduction to PerMedCoE, the HPC/Exascale Centre of Excellence for Personalised Medicine in Europe
The PerMedCoE webinar series aims to present and discuss topics and best practices in the field of personalized medicine. All PerMedCoE webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions. Please note that all webinars are recorded and available for posterior viewing.

Personalised Medicine (PerMed) opens unexplored frontiers to treat diseases at the individual level combining clinical and omics information. However, the performances of the current simulation software are still insufficient to tackle medical problems such as patient-specific treatments. The challenge is to develop a sustainable roadmap to scale-up the essential software for the cell-level simulation to the new European HPC/Exascale systems. PerMedCoE aims to provide an efficient and sustainable entry point to the HPC/Exascale-upgraded methodology to translate omics analyses into medical relevant actions.
It will accomplish so by:
- Optimising four core applications for cell-level simulations to the new pre-exascale platforms;
- Integrating PerMed into the new European HPC/Exascale ecosystem, by offering access to HPC/Exascale-adapted and optimised software;
- Running a comprehensive set of PerMed use cases including simulations of tumour evolution and drug combinations for cancer treatment; &
- Building the basis for the sustainability of the PerMedCoE by coordinating PerMed and HPC communities, and reaching out to industrial and academic end-users, with use cases, training, expertise, and best practices.
The PerMedCoE cell-level simulations will fill the gap between the molecular- and organ-level simulations from the other CoEs with which this project is aligned at different levels. It will connect method developers with HPC, HTC and HPDA experts. Finally, PerMedCoE will work with biomedical consortia and pre-exascale infrastructures, including a substantial co-design effort.
