Cell-in-fluid Research Group organizes the 2nd Workshop on Modelling of Biological Cells, Fluid Flow and Microfluidics - February 5-9, 2017. More information here.
Open PhD positions in our research group. More information.
The work of cell-in-fluid Research Group is closely related to research topics of Marie-Curie supported project BiomedMicrofluidics.
The cell-in-fluid Research Group focuses on modelling and simulations of elastic objects inside a fluid. The area of applications of such simulations is broad, however for the time being the main focus is on the blood flow modelling. The current topics we are interested in include:
- modelling of a single red blood cell
- studying of different approached to the coupling of fluid and immersed objects
- modelling of microfluidic devices
- affinity modelling
Our group implemented a framework in the software ESPResSo for modelling of elastic objects in a fluid. The documentation is available as a part of ESPResSo User Guide, see section 5.4 and 14.
The members of our group published an article in Journal of Computational Science (2015 Impact Factor 1.231). The title of the article is Simulation study of rare cell trajectories and capture rate in periodic obstacle arrays. Congratulate Martin, Iva, Renáta and Ivan.
In our research group we open two PhD positions starting from September 2016. More information are available at dedicated page.
Recently, new article has been published in Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering, (Impact Factor 1.770). The title of the article is Collision rates for rare cell capture in periodic obstacle arrays strongly depend on density of cell suspension. The article is available at journal website or at our publication section.
Recently, new article has been published in International Journal for Numerical Methods in Biomedical Engineering (Impact Factor 2.052). The title of the article is Non-uniform force allocation for area preservation in spring network models. The article is available at journal website or at our publication section. Congratulate Iveta and Ivan.
Starting in September, two doctoral students joined the group: Martin Slavik and Marek Kotus. Welcome!
We congratulate Iveta on obtaining the PhD degree. Good luck (not only) in your further scientific research.
In July, Iveta and Martin B. attended the Discrete Simulation of Fluid Dynamics (DSFD2015) conference. They presented our preliminary results on analysis of periodic obstacle arrays.
Our group participated at ICNAAM 2014 conference. I.Cimrák organized a symposium at the conference with title Modelling of Biological Cells, Fluid Flow and Microfluidics.
Two new PhD students have joined our research group: Jana Kadlecová and Martina Bušík. Welcome :-)
