He&rsquo;ll be presenting his work into the optimization of hemodynamics simulation code at ISC&rsquo;14, and he tells <em>iSGTW </em>why the event is not to be missed by early-career researchers.</p> 32797 Wed, 16 Apr 2014 07:11:32 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Developing models to predict long-term effects of heart repair <p> The straightforward, self-contained anatomical features of the aortic valve make it easily replaceable if it incurs damage or wears out. The mitral valve, on the other hand, is complex and interconnected, so changes in one area cause outcomes in others. Read about research to improve long-term valve repair outcomes by creating computational replicas that map the complex network of stresses that influence the valve&rsquo;s form and function.</p> 33138 Wed, 16 Apr 2014 07:11:31 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Smaller, better, faster, stronger 3D chips <p> Microprocessors are pervasive, rarely seen necessities of modern life, hiding out in electronic devices of all shapes and sizes. Researchers are looking at how 3D technology can help improve performance and energy efficiency in the next generation of microprocessors.</p> 33026 Wed, 16 Apr 2014 07:12:25 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed Smartphone game lets you pilot a spaceship to help tackle cancer 31723 Wed, 16 Apr 2014 07:11:32 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed
