Stanford University and UberCloud Achieve Breakthrough in Living Heart Simulations

Living Heart Project-logo-Gen1-gif-180x140Before a drug reaches the market, pharma companies need to check for the risk of inducing cardiac arrhythmia. Currently, this process takes years and involves costly animal and human studies. The Living Matter Laboratory of Stanford University developed an extended living heart software tool enabling drug developers to quickly assess the viability of a new compound. This means better and safer drugs reaching the market to improve patients’ lives. Supported by UberCloud, Dassault, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (Sponsor), and Advania, the Stanford team was able to perform extensive simulations in the Cloud. Based on the Abaqus 2017 software the computational model is now able to assess the response of new drug compounds rapidly and inexpensively. However, the creation of a suitable model requires taking a multi-scale approach that is computationally expensive: the electrical activity of cells is modeled in high detail and resolved simultaneously in the entire heart. Read about these achievements in detail in the HPCwire article.
