Computational Biophysics

SMMLab research activity on computational biophysics is done within the Center for Complexity and Biosystems in in close collaboration with the group of Caterina La Porta.

Physics of Cancer:

We using mathematical and physics based model to study cancer.   We have devised a model of cancer stem cell population dynamcis to study cancer growtn and senescence and compared the results with experiments. We have studyied  mathematical models the role of cancer stem cell m arkers and simulated individual particle models for tumor growth in

 

 

Microtubules:

MTMicrotubules are crucial for cell division. We have constructed and simulated three dimensional models of microtubule-kinetochore interactions, three dimensional models for cell division and the kinetics of molecular motors on cell division.
