What is DENIS@home?
More than 17 million people die each year of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). That represents 31% of all global deaths, making these diseases the leading cause of death worldwide. Can you help us investigate it?
By join DENIS@home you will donate the iddle times of your computer to develop and simulate mathematical models that investigate the heart. You only need to download and run a free program on your computer.
Electrophysiological models are a powerful tool to study the electrical activity of cardiac cells under normal or pathological conditions. These models can also help predict the effects of drugs in the heart. These models are complex and it's neccessary to simulate them many times (varying the conditions or model parameters). For this reason, researchers in this field usually require high computational power. We have created DENIS@home as a simulation infrastructure to help researchers. Will you help us?
