Systems Biology

The Diamond laboratory has worked on a variety of numerical problems motivated by reaction-transport processes in cardiovascular biology:

  • Moving front systems in eroding biopolymers
  • Two-body hydrodynamic collisions
  • Heterotypic aggregation-fragmentation processes
  • Stochastic kinetics during platelet and neutrophil adhesion
  • Stochastic kinetics of blood coagulation
  • P2Y1 - Phosphoinositides Model
  • Platelet-Plasma Clotting Model
  • Pairwise Agonist Scanning
  • LKMC for reactive platelet flow and deposition
