A computational tool to elucidate the mechanobiological regulation of limb development

Project description

Unlocking the mechanisms behind limb development

Many people suffer from conditions or congenital defects affecting joint and limb function, severely affecting their daily lives. It is therefore deemed important to uncover the underlying mechanisms behind joint function and limb formation. The EU-funded COMPLIMB project seeks to create a groundbreaking computational model to predict vertebrate limb development. It will closely study how specific changes affect joint development and limb growth. These observations will then be integrated into a powerful computational model. This model could serve as an important predictive tool to better treat joint deformities and improve detection of congenital defects in humans.
