282 Quantitative Approaches to Disease Mechanisms & Therapies

Tuesday, November 18, 2014: 8:30 AM
201 (Hilton Atlanta)
Description:
This session highlights applying conventional e.g., reaction and transport phenomena and emerging e.g., dynamical systems and statistical mechanics concepts from (bio)chemical engineering to aid in understanding disease mechanisms and designing therapies. Submissions that integrate experimental work with simulation and that demonstrate a clear connection between engineering fundamentals and disease pathophysiology are particularly encouraged.
