For the design of drug carriers (or nano-vehicles), it is crucial to understand how they are circulated in the human body. However, it is still challenging to predict the journey of drug carriers only by in vivo experiments. In this reason, mathematical and computational models are helpful to capture their dynamics in the microvasculature.
In this talk, I will introduce how to predict the dynamics of drug carriers in the multiscale nature of human body. First, the immersed type computational methods will be utilized for whole blood simulation with drug carriers in small vessels. Second, mathematically generated microvasculature will be compared with in vivo experiments. Third, angiogenesis in tumor environment is modeled by considering vessel growth factors, oxygen level, and tumor growth rate. In the end of this talk, the future direction of in silico models will be briefly discussed.
