What is the project?

AirPROM stands for ‘Airway Disease Predicting Outcomes through Patient Specific Computational Modelling’. This is the technical name for the 5 year European-wide project (2011-2015), which aims to produce computer and physical models of the whole airway system for people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Developing accurate models will provide:

AirPROM is an EU-funded project that brings together 34 partners from universities, research institutes, the biopharmaceutical industry, patient organisations, small companies and existing research projects with expertise in physiology, radiology, image analysis, bioengineering, data harmonization, security and ethics, computational modelling, systems biology, and health communication.
