[ONLINE] PATC: Short course on HPC-based Computational Bio-Medicine

Date: 15/Feb/2022 Time: 10:00 - 18/Feb/2022 Time: 13:30


Online via Zoom

Target group: INTERMEDIATE For trainees with some theoretical and practical knowledge  

Cost: There is no registration fee. The course is free of charge.  

Primary tabs


The objetive of this course is to give a panorama on the use of hpc-based computational mechanics in Biomedical Sciences. The training is delivered in collaboration with the centers of excellence CompBioMed2 and PerMedCoE.



Level: All courses are designed for MSc and PhD students in STEM or Medical sciences.

Please download and carefully read the following instructions regarding the logistics participants enrolling PATC at BSC are expected to follow.

Learning Outcomes

The course gives a wide perspective and the latest trends of how HPC helps in biomedical applications allowing to achieve more realistic multiphysics simulations. In addition, the student has the opportunity of running Jobs in Marenostrum supercomputer.
