The inherent complexity of biomedical systems is well recognized; they are multiscale, multiscience systems, bridging a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. While the importance of multiscale modelling in this context is increasingly recognized, there is little underpinning literature on the methodology and generic description of the process. The(More)
The ability to assay a variety of metals by noninvasive methods has applications in both biomedical and environmental research. Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a protein isolated from coelenterates that exhibits spontaneous fluorescence. GFP does not require any exogenous cofactors for fluorescence, and can be easily appended to other proteins at the DNA(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present a simple clotting model, based on residence time and shear stress distribution, that can simulate the deposition over time of enzyme-activated milk in an in vitro system. Results for the model are compared with experiments exhibiting clot deposition in the region of a sharp-edged stenosis. The milk experiments have(More)
An emerging numerical method for simulating reactive flows in complex geometries, called the lattice Boltzmann method, is presented in combination with a concurrent visualization system. This combination enables an efficient simulation and visualization of time dependent transport and reaction processes such as the pollutant transport in porous media and(More)
In-stent restenosis, the maladaptive response of a blood vessel to injury caused by the deployment of a stent, is a multiscale system involving a large number of biological and physical processes. We describe a Complex Automata Model for in-stent restenosis, coupling bulk flow, drug diffusion, and smooth muscle cell models, all operating on different time(More)
