The research line Mesoscale Simulations spins around two major topics
Computational Design of Mesoscale Materials
This activity is strictly related to the ERC Advanced Grant, Computational Modeling of Mesoscale Porous Materials, (COPMAT). COPMAT is targeted to the simulation at near-molecular resolution of full-scale microfluidic reactors for the computational design of new mesoscale porous materials, mostly, but non-exclusively, for bioengineering and regenerative medicine applications.
Multiscale Computational Physiology
The efficacy of pharmaceutical drugs is highly sensitive to the mechanisms by which such drugs are transported in the complex physiological environment of the human body.
In this activity, we plan to deploy highly innovative multiscale computational models for the detailed description of the vascular transport and tissue deposition of systemically administered nanomedicines.
