Multiscale and Multiphysics Modeling of Nanomaterials in Biological Systems


The application of nanomaterials has been enjoying extraordinary growth in the biological systems in recent years. Nanomaterials have been emerging as an indispensable and remarkable component for the breadth and depth of its impact on different multidiscipline in the biological systems. A holistic investigation of these complex hybrid material systems, especially at multiple length/time scales, is a forbidden challenge for experiments, as it is very time-consuming and cost-inefficient. To overcome this challenge, it requires the crosstalk of advancement of theoretical studies and exploitation of computational methods within the framework of multiscale and mutliphysics modeling to unveil their underpinning mechanisms. This mini-symposium will focus on the recent advances in computational modeling and theoretical analysis on the multiscale and multiphysics modeling of nanomaterials in biological systems.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

·         Self-assembly of nanoparticles under different environments, e.g. pH, light and solvent quality

·         Interaction between the nanoparticles and drug molecules, e.g. doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX), ibuprofen

·         Microcirculation of nanoparticles within blood flow, interacting with red blood cell, white blood cell and platelets

·         Diffusion of nanoparticles within tumor tissue

·         Endocytosis of nanoparticles by diseased cells and related up-take mechanisms.

·         Physics and chemistry of biological membranes

·         Toxicity of different nanomaterials, e.g. polymeric and metal nanoparticles, liposomes, micelles, quantum dots and dendrimers 

·         Multiple spatial/temporal scale material modeling and simulations

·         Interaction between biological materials and inorganic nanoparticles, such as enzyme for energy conversion, self-assembly of spherical nucleic acids particles
