Applied mathematics in stent development

Dr Tuoi Vo Coronary artery disease is a global problem and devising effective treatments is the subject of intense research activity throughout the world. Over the past decade, stents have emerged as one of the most popular treatments. Acting as a supporting scaffold, these small mesh devices are now routinely inserted into arteries where the […]

Modelling and experiments in drug delivery systems

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 […]
