Getting started

This page aims at providing a short introduction to the VPH-Share infrastructure, its services, and its use.

What is VPH-Share

VPH-Share is a large EC-funded research project ( that is building a safe online facility in which medical simulation developers can easily and quickly build workflows – chains of processing tasks – to allow raw medical information to be refined into meaningful diagnostic and therapeutic information. Via an easy-to-use web-based graphical interface it provides all the routine facilities needed by workflow developers, including design, construction, data-access and storage, test, high-speed computation, and results presentation.

Thanks to a careful design and implementation of the architecture, one of the main advantages of VPH-Share is that the developed state of the art services can be accessed both as an integrated platform via the VPH-Share web portal ( or as independent services ready to be integrated and re-used in other software platform development efforts.

VPH-Share services

Web interface portal

VPH-Share has developed the crucial visual element of the computational environment, the user interface, through which clinicians and researchers will access the VPH-Share resources. This portal, called Master Interface, provides access to all available facilities and data as 'atomic' services - small perfectly - designed elements of the larger process. These services are available to use individually, or in any combination, providing all the necessary tools for the Virtual Physiological Human computational environment. Users are able to use information already available in the system, and freely introduce their own with full control on the access permissions, allowing projects to share data and develop technologically through joint operations and international collaborations. The portal:

  • Allows users to register to the system and control the access to the owned resources
  • Integrates the services for the visualisation that enrich the user experience
  • Provides access to the VPH-Share atomic services
  • Provides the services for the execution of application workflows
  • Integrates existing workflows into the VPH-Share infostructure

For more information, please see: D6.5 - “Production Deployment of User Access Systems”


Cloud platform

In the recent years, medical scientists' abilities to produce complex data, such as scans and multicomponents time series, have tended to outstrip the ability to handle them effectively.  VPH-Share has developed a cloud computing platform with huge capacity, which enables users to share the vast amounts of complex data necessary to generate the Virtual Physiological Human. The cloud platform provides:

  • Resource allocation management dedicated to VPH application scenarios
  • An execution environment for flexible deployment of scientific software
  • Virtualised access to high performance execution environments
  • Cloud data access for very large objects and data transfer between services
  • Data reliability and integrity to ensure sound use of biomedical data
  • An appropriate security framework

For more information, please see: D2.6 - “Final deployment of the of the cloud platform” 


Data management

With the large and growing level of biomedical information outrunning current information management practice, VPH-Share also created a unified data management platform, which enables data controllers to manage patient information - images, records, diagnoses, treatment plans, outcomes - to suit their needs. Data sources include those from the @neurIST project - a rich data set of over 1200 images of cerebral aneurisms – and the VPH-OP project data – a clinical data collection from about 300 subjects at risk of osteoporotic fracture. The data infrastructure:

  • Provides a client application for the pre-processing and the upload of the data
  • Exposes data services, like de-identify selected data items and manage the data service on the cloud environment
  • Builds a service structure based on the renowed Vienna Grid Environment (VGE)
  • Creates data federation schemes across multiple data sources
  • Provides semantic mechanisms to discover, link and search data collections and services
  • Links data in personal health records to integrate in the data management platform

For more information, please see: D3.2.3 - “Data management platform software release v3” 


Semantic services

For VPH-Share resources to be meaningful to users, annotation must be consistent, irrespective of the data origin. VPH-Share uses semantic techniques to annotate resources, working with the data originators to determine appropriate semantic vocabularies.

The VPH-Share semantic services:

  • Provide a coherent semantic architecture to ensure the content has a legacy
  • Provide a set of ontologies to describe the data in the project
  • Create services to create, store, and retrieve metadata associated with any resource in the infostructure efficiently
  • Establish an infrastructure for semantic web services to allow the annotation, selection, and invocation of services and workflows
  • Develop services to apply statistical or inference techniques, to provide additional information obtained from VPH-Share data

For more information, please see: D4.6 - “VPH semantics production release”


Who can use VPH-Share services

How VPH-Share services can be used

As a user you can:

  • Access the VPH-Share portal for free
  • Access the resources available in the VPH-Share portal (data, applications and workflows) according to the permissions given by the resource owners
  • Upload your data into the system or make available metadata associated to the resources so that they can be searched and found by other users
  • Deploy your own services into the cloud platform
  • Execute the available workflows with your data
  • Build and share new workflows relying of the available applications and data
