Modelling and experiments in drug delivery systems

banner_uc

The Modelling and experiments in drug delivery systems 2016 (MEDDS2016) workshop aims to present state-of-the-art research on modelling and experimental approaches for drug delivery systems. The goal is to bring mathematicians, biologists, physicians and engineers together in an open discussion environment. Controlled drug delivery systems like drug-eluting stents, transdermal patches, and intravitreal implants have become a common tool in […]

VF2++ – a subgraph isomophism algorithm for molecular pattern matching

1mrl_fig2

In a previous blog entry, we introduced COIN-OR::LEMON (http://lemon.cs.elte.hu), the open source C++ graph and network modelling library. As we mentioned there, this library targets both academic and industrial applications. In this post a use-case for the latter is shown.   Last year, QuantumBio Inc.1 approached us with a simple request: they were using LEMON […]
