Lorenzo Sala is a Ph. D. candidate working in the Eye2brain project under the supervision of G. Guidoboni (U. Missouri, USA), M. Szopos (Cemosis,Unistra) and C. Prud’homme (Cemosis,Unistra). He was awarded the best poster prize from the Doctorate school MSII on Monday, October the 2nd.
His thesis aims at achieving non-invasive access to ocular biomarkers, as surrogates of cerebral status, by developing mathematical models parametrized with patient-specific data to describe the fluid-dynamics and metabolic connections between the eye and the brain. The complexity of this Eye2Brain system calls for a multiscale modeling approach, and the high computational cost and complex numerical analysis required are provided by Feel++.
The results described in this poster are also very significant from a clinical viewpoint, being able to reproduce biomechanics and hemodynamics in various tissues of the eye.
