IBBM general

Welcome to the Summer Course on Image-based Biomedical Modeling

IBBM will not be taking place in 2019. We will soon announce our plans for 2020.


This course offers field-specific expertise and hands-on experience solving bioelectric or biomechanical problems that arise in current biomedical research and clinical practice. Participants will receive training in numerical methods, image analysis, and computational tools necessary to carry out end-to-end, image based, subject specific simulations in bioelectricity or biomechanics, using freely available software. 

Presented by the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute, the Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC), and the Musculoskeletal Research Laboratories (MRL).

We particularly invite participation from students in health-related sciences belonging to underrepresented groups as defined by the NIH (find out more on the NIH Website)


Endorsed by the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) Society.
