Biomathematics Seminar: Modelling invasive processes in biology
11 February 2014 14:00 in CM105
The coordinated movement of cells is a ubiquitous phenomenon in early development but in many cases little is known about how cells set up signals and respond to them in a coherent way. A number of mathematical modelling approaches have been used to investigate this problem, ranging from coupled systems of partial differential equations, to individual-based models and variants in between. In this talk we will review some examples from developmental biology (epithelial sheet movement and neural crest cell invasion) as well as pathologies (cancer).
