PhD position @ Julius Wolff Institute (Berlin) : COMPUTER OPTIMIZATION OF SCAFFOLDS FOR BONE REGENERATION

A PhD position is available within the Computational Mechanobiology Group at the Julius Wolff Institute (Charite Medical School in Berlin) on the topic of computational optimization of scaffolds to promote bone regeneration within large bone defects. 

Background

Although bone has the fascinating ability to self-regenerate after injury, large bone defects often lead to delayed or non-unions. The treatment of these conditions remains a clinical challenge for which scaffold-based strategies appear as a promising approach. In this approach, 3D open porous structures are implanted in the bone defect with the aim to support bone regeneration. Although, preliminary pre-and clinical data show encouraging results, there is still a need to optimize these scaffolds to ensure successful healing. The growth of new bone within the scaffold is influenced by many factors, such as the scaffold architecture, material properties, patient health condition, etc. The aim of this project is to investigate the potential optimization of scaffolds to promote bone regeneration within large bone defects.

Tasks

You will develop computer models to simulate the bone healing process and the interaction between mechanical signals (strains) within the healing region and biological processes (e.g. cellular migration, matrix deposition, etc.) taking place. You will simulate the interaction of the bone regeneration process with scaffold-support structures and develop algorithms for the computer optimization of the scaffold design to promote the bone healing process. You will be able to compare model predictions with experimental data from animal studies (e.g. histology, microCT) and to have access to patient data. The project is part of a research collaboration between several Institutes on the topic of “Personalised Bone Defect Treatment” (Funded by the BMBF).

Your profile

  • A degree in Mechanical Engineering/Computer Science/Mathematical Biology or a related discipline
  • Knowledge of Finite Element Modelling will be advantageous
  • Experience in Programming is required (e.g. C/C++, Matlab)
  • High motivation and strong interest in research

What we provide

This position is available for a period of three years. Salary will be commensurate with experience. You will work in a friendly team and in a unique research environment. As a PhD student you will be associated to the Berlin-Brandenburg School of Regenerative Therapies (www.bsrt.de) and benefit from the interaction with international students. Starting date: 1st October, 2019.

Apply
Interested candidates should send a CV, a cover letter and two references that could be contacted. Please email the application to Prof. Checa via email at: sara.checa@charite.de

Petition, letter to EMA about in silico methods

The European Medicine Agency has recently published a document that describes its strategy until 2025:
https://www.ema.europa.eu/en/documents/regulatory-procedural-guideline/ema-regulatory-science-2025-strategic-reflection_en.pdf

The EMA proposed strategy recognizes the importance of emerging technologies in general and modelling and simulation, also known as in silico methods, in particular. However, the document tends to stress the value of in silico methods almost exclusively in connection with the reduction of animal experimentation. While we agree that this is a relevant application for such methods, it is not the only one and likely not the most impactful one for the patient and for the industry. The term In Silico Trials indicates a number of use cases, not only related to pre-clinical evaluation, but also to the reduction, refinement, and in some cases even replacement of clinical trials.

The VPH Institute together with the Avicenna Alliance, the Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine and the Alma Mater Studiorum, University of Bologna has drafted an open letter, which will be sent to Prof Guido Rasi – the Director of EMA to raise our collective voices on this regard.

At this link you can find the full text and SIGN THE PETITION:
https://www.change.org/p/guido-rasi-foster-adoption-of-in-silico-trials-through-ema-s-strategy-on-regulatory-science-to-2025

We wish to collect signatures on the document by as many experts in academia and industry as possible to make sure our voice is heard. We encourage you all to take a minute of your time to fill up this form and help us raising the awareness of your colleagues on this matter.

This Marie Curie-PhD project will focus on the development of validated numerical models for optimization of screw design and bone augmentation as a function of surrounding bone morphology. The project will (i) increase the understanding of failure mechanisms of a screw/bone and screw/bone/cement constructs, at the microscale, (2) produce 3-dimensional, validated numerical models of screw pull-outs in human bone and (3) develop novel screw and screw augmentation designs and recommendations, better adapted to the microstructure of the surrounding bone. The project will be performed mainly at Uppsala University. Main supervision will be undertaken by Prof Cecilia Persson (Uppsala University), with co-supervision from Prof Per Isaksson (Uppsala University) and Dr Jonas Åberg (OssDsign AB).

Learn How to use SimVascular: the open source pipeline for cardiovascular modeling

We are delighted to announce our first webinar of the ESB Webinar Series. The webinar will take place on June 11th 2019 at 17:00 CET. In this webinar, we are going to explore an open source software package to simulate and analyze the cardiovascular system. SimVascular is the only fully open source software package providing a complete pipeline from medical image data segmentation to patient specific blood flow simulation and analysis.

Presentation will be given by Mr. Gabriel Maher. Gabriel is a PhD Student at the Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation lab at Stanford University, his research is focused on deep learning for cardiovascular medical imaging and he is one of the core developers of the SimVascular project

During the webinar, we will explore together with the developers the features and abilities of the software and the procedure of building and analyzing a complete cardiovascular model.

More specifically, you will learn how to use SimVascular to:

  • Build 3D patient-specific cardiovascular models
  • Run computational blood flow simulations
  • Visualize and analyze simulation data 

and become familiar with the features of the software such as:

  • Image Analysis: volume rendering, image denoising, edge detection
  • Model Construction: level set segmentation, model repair tools
  • Meshing: radius-based and boundary layer meshing, adaptive mesh refinement
  • Simulation: deformable walls, variable mechanical properties, highly parallelized solver
  • Machine learning to accelerate vascular segmentation
  • Python interface
  • Automated pipeline for 1D simulations
  • Enhanced capabilities for 3D segmentation

You will have the chance to ask your questions which will be addressed by the instructors at the end of the webinar. However, it would be great if you could send your question in advance while filling the registration form or by sending to Ehsan.soodmand@charite.de and/or rodrigo.romarowski@grupposandonato.it before the start of the webinar.
