Physiological Gels Research Group

The goal of our research is to better understand how gels are formed and how they function in important physiological processes. We use mathematical modeling and analysis, and computational simulation to explore the behavior and regulation of fibrin gels formed during blood clotting, mucin gels that protect the stomach lining and cover respiratory-airway and other epithelial cells, and the complex multicomponent gels that comprise the cytoplasm. We develop novel models and novel, efficient, and robust computational methods to carry out this work. The core research group consists of mathematicians at the University of Utah, the University of California at Davis, and Boise State University. We work with experimental groups in the United State, Europe, and Japan. Our work is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
