Bio-Fluid Dynamics

Tuesday, October 18, 2011: 3:15 PM
101 C (Minneapolis Convention Center)

This session of contributed presentations will focus on the hydrodynamics of bio-fluids. Topics of interest include the dynamics of biomolecules (e.g., proteins and single DNA chains), blood flow, hydrodynamic separation of particles and cells, and hydrodynamic phenomena in drug-delivery systems.
