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 aimed to produce computer and physical models of the whole airway system for people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).Read the project booklet
AirPROM was an EU-funded project that brought together 34 partners from universities, research institutes, the biopharmaceutical industry, patient organisations, small companies and existing research projects. The teams had with expertise in physiology, radiology, image analysis, bioengineering, data harmonization, security and ethics, computational modelling, systems biology, and health communication.
