ESB Webinar – Agent-based computer modeling approaches to simulate biological processes

The next ESB webinar, on April 22nd, 2021– 17:00 – 18:00 CEST,  targeted towards individuals interested in agent-based computer modeling approaches to simulate biological processes. In particular, the webinar aims at:

  • Introducing participants to the basics of agent-based modeling
  • Providing examples of their application to investigate clinical-related problems.

By the end of the webinar, attendees will learn the basic principles to build an agent-based model including how to:

  • Simulate individual agents
  • Specify agent properties
  • Define agent behavior and interactions
  • Analyze and visualize model predictions

The webinar will be conducted by Prof. Sara Checa. She is a Junior Professor at the Julius Wolff Institute, Charite-Universitaetsmedizin Berlin, where she leads the research group of “Computational Mechanobiology”. She holds a guest researcher position at the Technical University Berlin as well. She is an expert on computational mechanobiology applied to tissue regeneration and adaptation and has a profound expertise on the development of agent-based computer models to investigate clinical-related questions. She completed her PhD at the University of Southampton and conducted post-doctoral research at the Trinity Center for Bioengineering in Ireland, at Stanford University in the USA and then at the Julius Wolff Institute, where she stayed first as a group leader and now as Professor.

The seminar will last 45 minutes and will be followed by 15 minutes of Q/A from the audience. You will have the chance to ask your questions which will be addressed by the speaker 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 and/or  before the webinar.
