The Centre for Computer Graphics and Visualisation (CCGV) at the University of Bedfordshire has been involved in the Living Human Project (LHP) with several European partners - bioengineers, anatomists and computer scientists - for many years.

The LHP was one of the founding projects for an ambitious pan-European initiative, sponsored by the European Commission, called the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH). This has the long-term vision of developing a multiscale model of the human physiology, which will revolutionise how healthcare can be provided to European citizens. The first VPH projects are already under way and further projects will follow successively in coming years. CCGV is currently involved in 8 such projects, generally providing visualisation, modelling and similar services to improve the facilities available for clinicians and medical researchers.

This talk will discuss the history and aims of the VPH and will look in detail at some of the visualisation aspects of the recent projects in which CCGV has been involved.
