    • A stochastic hybrid model with a fast concentration bias for chemotactic cellular attraction 

      Ojer Ferrer, Jaume; García López, Alvaro; Used, Javier; Fernández Sanjuan, Miguel Angel (2022-03)
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      We reproduce the phenomenon of chemotaxis through a hybrid random walk model in two dimensions on a lattice. The dynamics of the chemoattractant is modelled using a partial differential equation, which reproduces its ...
    • Development of microfluidic devices based on in 3D printing systems 

      Gauvin, Benjamin (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-02)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      Los objetivos de este proyecto fueron la creación de un dispositivo microfluidico base en la impresión tres dimensiones, la obtención de un gradiente en este dispositivo, su control y observación. Para realizar el ...
    • Fractional Patlak--Keller--Segel equations for chemotactic superdiffusion 

      Estrada Rodríguez, Gissell; Gimperlein, Heiko; Painter, Kevin J. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2018-01)
      Open Access
      The long range movement of certain organisms in the presence of a chemoattractant can be governed by long distance runs, according to an approximate Lévy distribution. This article clarifies the form of biologically relevant ...
    • On the theory of cell migration: durotaxis and chemotaxis 

      Diego Íñiguez, Javier (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-07-03)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Cell migration is a fundamental element in a variety of physiological and pathological processes. Alteration of its regulatory mechanisms leads to loss of adhesion and increased motility, critical steps in the initial ...
    • Treatment-induced shrinking of tumour aggregates: a nonlinear volume-filling chemotactic approach 

      Estrada Rodríguez, Gissell; Almeida, Luis; Oliver, Lisa; Peurichard, Diane; Poulain, Alexandre; Vallette, François (2021-09)
      Open Access
      Motivated by experimental observations in 3D/organoid cultures derived from glioblastoma, we propose a novel mechano-transduction mechanism where the introduction of a chemotherapeutic treatment induces mechanical changes ...
