Biopolymer networks are of fundamental importance to many biological processes in normal and tumorous tissues. In this paper, we employ the panoply of theoretical and simulation techniques developed for characterizing heterogeneous materials to quantify the microstructure and effective diffusive transport properties (diffusion coefficient D(e) and mean survival time τ) of collagen type I networks at various collagen concentrations. In particular, we compute the pore-size probability density… CONTINUE READING
