Student Talk Series: Matt Mizuhara ’12, March 24th @ 12 noon in Olin 268

Title: Mathematical biology under the microscope:  A study of cell motility Abstract: Although physics and chemistry have long relied on mathematics as a descriptive and exploratory tool, biological systems were historically seen as too complex to be understood theoretically. However, advances in mathematics and computational capabilities now allow for the quantification of biological problems in a field called mathematical biology. In this talk I will introduce a modern topic of mathematical biology: crawling cell motility. Cell motion plays a central role in wound healing and the immune response, e.g., to fight foreign bodies. We will present a partial differential equation model for […]
