RICORDO (Italian for memory) is a sub-project within the European Commission's Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) project focused on improving the sharing and reuse of physiological models and data.

The larger VPH project is a network of international researchers, primarily in Europe, developing computer models and simulations of human physiology. These models will use the physiological data of individual patients to run simulations that will test potential personalized medical therapies.

As part of the RICORDO team, Dr. Daniel Cook, Dr. John Gennari, Onard Mejino, MD and Dr. Maxwell Neal, helped developed a semantic framework for integrating biosimulation models and biomedical data. Our research will help VPH modelers more effectively search for, share, and reuse models and data. Click here for the VPH's RICORDO project page.
