Applied Math Seminar

Professor Ami Radunskaya (Pomona College)


Mathematical models of physical, chemical and behavioral processes can be used to understand the mechanisms behind the process, to hypothesize about how the process can be modified and to predict future behavior. A useful mathematical model can help the laboratory scientist interpret data, and model simulations can suggest ways to translate discoveries into effective clinical treatments. In this talk I will describe several modeling projects with collaborators from the School of Pharmacy at the University of Otago in New Zealand: targeted drug delivery, breaching the blood brain barrier, the effect of anti-coagulants, and virtual mice responding to in silico vaccines.
