Computational biology and nanotechnology have become critical elements in particle interactions, especially in biological sciences, medicine, toxicology, and technology. Multiscale Modeling of Particle Interactions provides vital insight on particle interactions in areas of biological sciences, chemical engineering, medicine, and manufacturing technology. To better examine cell and tissue mechanics, theoretical aspects of multiscale modeling, and new developments in nanotechnology, the text includes real experimental data and images from novel optical microscopy systems. Chemists and biologists as well as clinicians and students will find this a helpful and important reference.
MICHAEL R. KING, PhD, is an Associate Professor ofBiomedical Engineering at Cornell University. King is an expert onthe receptor-mediated adhesion of circulating cells, and hasdeveloped new computational and in vitro models to study thefunction of leukocytes, platelets, and stem, stem and cancer cellsunder flow. He is a former Whitaker investigator, a James D. WatsonInvestigator of New York State, and an NSF CAREER Award recipient.King received the 2008 ICNMM Outstanding Researcher Award from theAmerican Society of Mechanical Engineers, was the 2007-2008Professor of the Year in Engineering at the University ofRochester, and received the 2009 Outstanding Contribution for aPublication in the international journal Clinical Chemistry. DAVID J. GEE, PhD, is an Assistant Professor ofMechanical Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology,where he studies the inflammatory response and investigatesapplications in receptor-mediated adhesion. Previously, Dr. Gee wasa research assistant professor and postdoctoral fellow in theDepartment of Biomedical Engineering at the University ofRochester, where he studied inflammation, and has also served as aresearch engineer at the Institute for Advanced Technology at TheUniversity of Texas at Austin, where he specialized in impactmechanics and computational solid mechanics.
