Mathematical Models of Marine Protected Areas

Marine protected areas (MPAs) have been promoted as conservation and fishery management tools, and at present, there are over 1300 MPAs in the world. Most researchers suggest that in the long term MPAs provide multiple benefits, including: reduced li   more››

Mathematical Study of Brain Tumor Therapies

Glioma is the most serious malignant brain tumor. In order to improve the efficacy of therapies, it is important to understand its progression with therapies and its genesis. In this talk, I will first present our effort in understanding of glioma   more››

An in-silico model of early tumor development dynamics - implications for treatment design

Cancer development may be considered an evolutionary process whereby genetically unstable cell clones compete under selective influences of the local environment and succeed in accordance with the relative fitnesses of their expressed phenotypes. The   more››

Analysis of immune cell chemotaxis and signal integration

In response to an injury, immune cells are recruited to fight off infecting microbes and clear cellular damage. A number of chemicals, called chemoattractants, are produced at or near sites of infection and inflammation and diffuse into the surrou   more››

What is Mathematical Biology and How Useful is It?

Biological processes are very complex, and mathematical models of such processes are at best just a crude approximation. Nevertheless, one can gain some useful knowledge from the models. In this talk, I shall give examples of biological and biomed   more››

Stable segregation of PAR proteins in the early C elegans embryo

PAR proteins, collectively termed the anterior and posterior PAR proteins, establish distinct intracellular spatial domains in the one cell C elegans embryo, polarizing the cell. This polarization is persistent, lasting approximately 10-20 minutes   more››

A Non-Equilibrium Steady-State Theory of Phosphorylation-Dephosphorylation Switch in Cellular Signalling

We present a mathematical theory for a biochemical switch system, which can be either the phosphorylation-dephosphorylation cycle (PdPC) reactions catalyzed by a kinase and a phosphatase, or GTPase cycles catalyzed by a guanine exchange factor (GE   more››
