Growth of regenerated tissue in vitro is very sensitive to the diffusive properties of the nutrients and oxygen into the host material. This project proposes to develop a computational model of diffusion of molecules into hydrogels. The anticipated outcomes are 2D diffusion maps within the hydrogel material for different time points simulating the penetration of the growth factors. Depending on the length of the project, experimental validation can be added to the computational part.
This project would suit students with an interest in computer engineering and mathematical modelling, with prior experience in scientific programming such as Matlab and Python.
