The investigation of the role of mechanical and mechano-chemical interactions in cellular processes and tissue development has become a rapidly growing research field in the life sciences. A quantitative understanding of this important aspect of biological systems requires one to develop adequate mathematical models, and simulate numerically the evolution of these systems in space and time. This calls for a multidisciplinary approach since expertise in various fields is absolutely necessary.
In order to achieve the multidisciplinary approach the researchers, and especially young researchers working in different fields, must be given a chance to meet and understand the challenges and questions arising in the specialised fields, and then eventually start to work together. This is ultimately the objective of the doctoral school Modeling of Biomaterials.
Six main speakers will deliver a series of lectures on recent issues in the modeling of biomaterials. This is a very broad field and the school aims to provide different possible views on the field. Ample time within the school is allocated for the promotion of informal scientific discussions among the participants.Speakers and topics (see also the Program):
The doctoral school is organised in the framework of the 4EU+ European University Alliance, which is formed by Charles University, Heidelberg University and Sorbonne University, and the Universities of Copenhagen, Milan and Warsaw. The school is organized under the auspices of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) as an EMS summer school in applied mathematics (ESSAM), and under the auspice of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague (MFF UK), as an activity of the Nečas Center for Mathematical Modeling. The event is sponsored by RSJ. Financial support covering the conference fee is available for students, early career participants and participants with limited resources. The applications for the support together with a short curriculum vitae to be sent to the conference email by January 10, 2020.
