VIGOR++

VIGOR++

VIGOR++ (VIrtual GastrOintestinal tRact) is an FP7 project in the context of Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) creating a multiscale, personalised gastrointestinal tract model, which facilitates improved detection of Crohn’s disease and drives an accurate index of Crohn’s disease severity. VIGOR++ acquires laboratory, MRI, colonoscopy and microscopy (histopathology) data in order to develop ICT tools. A novel integration of existing models is employed to predict features on the molecular to cellular scale (microscopy/colonoscopy) from descriptive properties at the organ to patient scales (MRI/laboratory). Effectively, this would render the standard methods (colonoscopy/biopsy) superfluous. Vodera is responsible for the dissemination and commercial diffusion of the generated innovations.
