Smith presented cell capture simulation advances at APS-DFD 2012

I presented my recent work on cell capture simulations at the Fall meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics (APS DFD) in San Diego. During this podium presentation, I detailed a reduced order model for predicting the adhesion of rare cells, such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs) to antibody-functionalized obstacle surfaces in microdevices. This work builds on my past projects involving particle collision dynamics and will facilitate the design of a new generation of rare cell capture microdevices.
