On Active Flows On Cell Surfaces
The session consisted in a numerical perspective on modelling and simulating (active) flows on cell surfaces. I focused on physical models for the plasma membrane and the actomyosin cortex and the main challenges in their numerical approximation.
I will upload the session slides shortly. In the meantime, if you want to take your first dive into the physics and the numerics of this exciting topic, I invite you to check these two references:
On the actomyosin cortex:
On lipid membranes and general biological interfaces:
Last but not least, a shout-out to my lab colleagues for the insightful feedback I received during the session. Thanks, guys!
