Title:Multiscale Modeling of the Cell and Beyond
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Zhangli Peng, University of Notre Dame
Abstract:
Molecular mutations can lead to altered physical properties and malfunction of cells. However, it is a grand computational challenge to bridge the scales from molecules to cells. In this seminar, I will show examples of applying multiscale modeling to investigate biophysical problems from molecular level to cell level, such as malaria, hereditary blood disorder, sickle cell disease, and cancer metastasis. The findings from these problems have only become possible due to the multiscale modeling technique and the state-of-the-art understanding of molecular structures, and promise a new avenue to study the physics of living systems.
