Soft Biological Shells in Bioengineering

Roustem N Miftahof, Nariman R Akhmadeev


Soft Biological Shells in Bioengineering integrates existing experimental data to construct multiscale models of various organs of the human body: the stomach, gravid uterus, urinary bladder, the small intestine and the large intestine. These models are used as in silico platforms to study intricate physiological and pathophysiological processes, and to assess pharmacological modulations on their dynamics. This book will be of value to postgraduate students, researchers and medical doctors interested in computational systems biology.
