dc.description.abstractThe main goal of this work is to numerically investigate the behavior of a cell flowing in a microfluidic system. In particular, we want to model flow-induced deformations of an isolated cell to quantitatively evaluate the cell response when subjected to a representative range of flow rates in a realistic geometry, with specific interest in the case of cell trapping. This research will help optimize operating conditions as well as the design of cell manipulation/culture micro-devices, so as to guarantee cell viability and ultimately improve high-throughput performance.
