Tampere University

Professor Jari Hyttinen is a full Professor, and head of BioMediTech unit at Faculty of Medicine and health technology (MET) at Tampere University. He received his MSc and PhD from Tampere University of Technology 1986 and 1994, respectively. PhD Prof Hyttinen has been visiting researcher at the University of Pennsylvania PA USA, University of Tasmania Australia, Duke University,NC USA. He has acted as a visiting professor at University of Wollongong, Australia 2017 and ETH Zurich Switzerland 2018. In his PhD thesis prof Hyttinen developed computer model of the heart and thorax to simulate ischemia and changes of ECG voltages. Professor Jari Hyttinen laboratory, the Computational Biophysics and Imaging Group (www.research.tuni.fi/cbig), develops novel computer simulations (in-silico) on cellular biophysics, body–on-chip technologies and in-vitro 3D imaging methods for future personalized medicine. As Prof Hyttinen’s sees it, the FAME Flagship provides an excellent platform for collaboration in Finland on merging development of mathematical principles with applications such as imaging, which has potential to strengthen the collaboration with industry and other stakeholders, thus generating new joint funding schemes.
