Using computers to understand the deposition of pollutant and therapeutic aerosols in the human lungs

In an urban setting, suspended pollutant particles enter our lungs along with air we inhale.   A good portion of them gets deposited on our airways, often inducing toxic effects. A young child or an elderly patient facing

Computational systems biology in cancer brain metastasis

Cancer metastasis, especially cancer brain metastasis, is a complicated process representing the major cause for cancer-related deaths worldwide. A better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of such malignancies will enable us to develop more efficient therapeutic strategies.

Non-invasive real-time prediction of inner knee temperatures during therapeutic cooling

Measurements in biomedicine are often difficult to perform because human subjects are involved. Many examples can be found, particularly in clinical procedures, where in vivo measurements are often not as accurate as desired, difficult, dangerous or even
