Project from DCC UC academic is selected as one of the three best proposals in NOVUS Triada 2019

Improving anatomical recognition through the integration of virtual and analogous components for the study of human anatomy, is the basis of the interdisciplinary project by Andrés Neyem, academic of the DCC UC, which was selected as one of the three best proposals of the call “NOVUS Triad 2019”, joint effort between the Catholic University of Chile, the University of the Andes of Colombia and the Tecnológico de Monterrey de México.
This joint initiative of academics of Engineering, Medicine and Design, uses 3D reconstructions as an alternative to the preparations based on corpses, when studying and working with anatomy, a factor that stood out for the over 200 applications received by the call, with the objective of promoting innovation and incorporating new technology in research projects or solutions to educational problems. This award of funds deepens the knowledge already initiated in initiatives such as the FONDEF T16i10073 project “Anatomical Protection in Replicas and 3D Reconstructions of Human Body Sections” directed by Professor Neyem.
Some of the project's projections focus on developing educational resources that support the Medical Schools at national and regional levels, allowing a teaching-learning process that uses inputs such as 3D anatomical resources and Virtual Reality to support anatomy learning, with models developed through high precision technologies based on real cadaveric samples and viewable through a platform accessible via mobile devices, desktops and web.
