Umar Saleem is the head of the feasibility in the Innovation department at BioSerenity, where all innovative projects go through.
Umar graduated from Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne with a Master of Science. He did a PhD in a French-Singaporean joint laboratory - between the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), NTU (Nanyang Technological University) and Thales (French electronics company) - located in Singapore. The thesis focuses on the “Synthesis and Characterization of Wide-Bandgap Semiconductor nanostructures towards Opto-Electronic applications."
Andrea is an aeronautical engineer with a PhD in mechanical engineering who has discovered his passion for life sciences after almost ten years’ experience in the automotive industry as an acoustic and vibration simulation expert and project manager.
Strongly believing in teamwork and people development, in the past three years since the beginning of Digital Orthopaedics, he has led an R&D team focused on developing virtual twins for performing a risk analysis of different patient-specific orthopedic treatments.
Andrea is currently in a new position as a Service & Valorisation Manager: his mission is to transform R&D products into a benefit for the customers.
Adi MORANY, is a research assistant and PhD candidate at Tel-Aviv University, under the supervision of Prof. Rami Haj-Ali. Adi received his BSc degree (2015) in Aerospace Engineering from the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) and earned his Master's in Mechanical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University. His current research activities focus on biomechanical, finite elements, and multiphysics analysis, mainly co-simulating refined aortic valve (AV) models within the Living Heart Human Model (LHHM). Adi and his colleagues previously developed several stand-alone parametric AV structural models, including tricuspid and bicuspid AV geometries with different pathologies, such as calcification, to examine kinematic factors. A prime goal of his research is to incorporate the parametric AV model into the LHHM, and to introduce blood flow simulations through the AV model, using FSI approach under realistic boundary conditions of the deformed ventricles, simulated from the LHHM electromechanical response. This ultimately will lead to integrated LHHM-AV co-simulation with full hemodynamic behaviors.
After graduating with a DESS in Life Sciences and a Master's Degree in Innovation, Myriam worked for 20 years as Sales Manager and Business Developer in the field of Life Sciences for several Information Technology & Software companies (Accelrys, Elsevier, Qiagen and Schrödinger). Myriam joined Dassault Systèmes in 2016, first working for the BIOVIA brand, and has recently joined the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab team.
Anne GOUPIL-LAMY, Ph.D., principal field application scientist and Science Council Fellow at BIOVIA, obtained her doctorate in molecular biophysics from the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris VI, France). She studied protein dynamics and denaturation using molecular dynamic simulations and neutron scattering experiments under the supervision of Professor Jeremy C. Smith. Goupil-Lamy joined MSI (now BIOVIA) in 1998 as a support scientist and gained expertise in the many modelling areas supported by BIOVIA' life science modelling tools. While managing BIOVIA' contract research group for many years in Europe and worldwide, she performed feasibility studies, developed proposals and was involved in the delivery of structure-based design and ligand-based design projects with one contract resulting in a patent. As a pre-sales scientist, she has performed several validation studies in fragment-based design and protein-protein interactions that were presented at conferences and to customers. She is also involved in biotherapeutics projects focusing on antibody design.
Enrique MORALES ORCAJO holds a PhD in Computational Mechanics with a specialization in Biomechanics from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) and Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil). He did a post-doc in the TU Braunschweig (Germany) in the fields of experimental mechanics and tissue biomechanics. His research has contributed to the fields of biomechanics, computational mechanics, experimental mechanics, and tissue mechanics.
Currently, Enrique is the R&D Manager of Digital Orthopaedics leading the simulation team to the new era of digital twins in the healthcare industry.
Dr. Steve LEVINE is Sr. Director of Life Science and the Executive Director of the Living Heart Project at Dassault Systèmes. Steve is responsible for leading the DS strategy for digital healthcare, including the 3DEXPERIENCE Twin, which uses advanced AI and VR to create functioning 3D human models. He is also responsible for incubating a startup community within the 3DEXPERIENCE Labs at DS and creating a marketplace of digital healthcare services.
