From single cell to collective cell migration in multicellular systems: mathematical and computational modelling of real biological systems
Grant number: DP110100795 | Funding period: 2011 - 2015
Cell motion is a complex process, fundamental to physiological processes. This project provides the necessary quantitative framework to understand the full range of cell migration patterns observed in vivo, thereby contributing tools for cancer treatment and tissue engineering, as well as enhancing Australia's reputation in mathematical biology.
