Modelling applications of nanomaterials in biology and medicine

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • Nanomaterials, especially carbon nanotubes, create the possibility of many new technologies, devices and medicines. Nanomaterials will revolutionise treatment of many illnesses, including cancer, and may form the basis of treatments for exotic viruses, such as bird flu and those arising from biological terrorism. This proposal will utilize applied mathematics and advanced continuum mechanics to accurately quantify the underlying complex physical processes of nanocarriers used in disease detection, targeted drug and gene delivery and cancer therapy. Such mathematical modelling will accelerate progress in these vital areas of nanotechnology, providing valuable insights and unique perspectives, which are otherwise unobtainable
