Bowel Adenocarcinoma Mucin Secreting

An effective and efficient aproach to tackle the health and environment related issues requires a systems methodology, for example when scaling-up from intra-cellular phenomena to interactions between the cells at the organ level. The Department prides itself in being a leader in developing mathematical models to provide a quantitative understanding and analysis of biological systems and to also provide control and design solutions to meet the healthcare objectives.

We collaborate with experts from other disciplines including life scientists, clinicians and computer scientists so as to cover the depth and the breadth of the system under study.

Currently we are working on:

  • Systems Biology (models for the liver, epithlial cells, cystic fibrosis)
  • Synthetic Biology (design of gene oscillators)
  • Delivery of Therapeutic Agents (drug delivery, gene delivery)
  • Clean Water (Desalination using thermal, membrane and solvent extraction processes)
  • Supply Chain Modelling and Optimisation
