Vice President: Jérôme Noailly
Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Jérôme Noailly holds a BSc in physical chemistry, an Engineer’s degree in Material Science, & an MSc in Acoustics. He did a PhD in computational biomechanics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain. In 2007, he was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship to work in mechanobiology at the AO Foundation (Switzerland) & the Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands). In 2009, he joined the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia, Spain. He led the Biomechanics & Mechanobiology group from 2012 to 2015 and expanded his research to computational systems biology. In 2015, he relocated at UPF and became PI at BCN MedTech, in the Department of Information & Communication Technologies (DTIC). In 2016, he obtained a Ramon y Cajal fellowship to consolidate systems modelling approaches in multiscale explorations of tissues & organs. He is now a tenured Associate Professor at DTIC. In 2020, he became the coordinator of the ITN Disc4All (H2020-955735) project about data & computational simulations in translational medicine, and in 2022, he was awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant (O-Health-101044828) about simulation systems of low-grade inflammation & long-term degeneration of tissues & organs.
