ASSESS Initiative announces that Dr. Mark Palmer, distinguished scientist & lead in Strategic Scientific Operations at Medtronic, plc., will be a keynote speaker for the upcoming ASSESS 2022 Congress, to be held at The Georgian Terrace Hotel, in Atlanta, GA May 1-3, 2022. Dr. Palmer’s keynote presentation’s title is “The Role of Computer Modelling and Simulation of Digital Transformation in Healthcare.”
Mark Palmer, M.D., Ph.D., received his B.S. in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University. Subsequently, Dr. Palmer attended the University of Michigan where he received an M.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering, M.S. in Biomedical Engineering, ultimately completing the Medical Scientist Training Program with an MD and PhD in Mechanical Engineering.
Dr. Palmer spent three years as an entrepreneur before returning to the University of Michigan as a faculty member with appointments in biomedical engineering and kinesiology collaborating with the chair of Orthopedic Surgery. In 2014, Dr Palmer was recruited to Medtronic where his current role includes leading an internal team of advanced modeling and simulation consultants servicing the global enterprise, manages external collaborations, and leads the strategy and platform technologies for realistic human simulation.
Dr. Palmer also serves as a member of the Enterprise AI Working Group and leads the Enterprise Modeling and Simulation Working Group. Extramurally, Dr. Palmer serves on the National Association of Finite Element Methods and Standards (NAFEMS) Business Impact Working Group and Industry Advisory Boards for American Society for Mechanical Engineering (ASME) and the international CompBioMed Consortium.
Dr. Palmer holds two patents in computational modeling, has 15 publications on the application of modeling and simulation in leading biomechanics, physiology and orthopedic journals, and he has served as an invited speaker or presenter at over 70 national and international conferences.
The ASSESS 2022 Congress is the 5th annual congress for ASSESS organized to “enable” both strategies and relationships related to significantly increasing the use and benefit of Engineering Simulation. The theme of the ASSESS 2022 Congress is “Leading the Engineering Simulation Revolution.”
Registration for the ASSESS 2022 Congress is by invitation only and is limited to 110 attendees. Registration will close either when all available seats are taken but no later than April 22, 2022.
The ASSESS Initiative was formed to bring together key players, both users and developers of simulation software, to guide and influence the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering with a vision “To significantly expand the use and benefit of software tools for model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering in the engineering applications domain.”
