    This article aims to promote integration of angiogenesis-related models, both integration of the work described herein and many other existing and future models. Integration of molecular mechanisms with cell- and organ- level models allows investigators to study angiogenesis from perspectives in time and space that were once unattainable. As new tools develop for the systematic validation, integra... View full abstract»

    This study briefly reviews the model that describes platelet behavior resulting in aggregation and thrombus formation. This is followed by an overview of the basics of the dissipative particle dynamics (DPD), the simulation method adopted here.Details of the numerical simulations is then described and results of these simulations are presented.

    Nowadays, experimental biology gathers a large number of molecular and genetic data to understand the processes in living systems. Many of these data are evaluated on the level of cells, resulting in a changed phenotype of cells. Tools are required to translate the information on the cellular scale to the whole tissue, where multiple interacting cell types are involved. A recently developed multis... View full abstract»

    This paper indicates that in ventricular myocytes when the SR (sarcoplasmic reticulum) is pharmacologically inhibited, the intracellular Ca2+concentration rapidly increases during Ca2+ entrance (0-70 ms), whereas the decay of Ca2+ is slow; in the absence of fluorescent dye, large Ca2+ concentration gradients might develop near the cell membrane; intracel...

    The term multiscale modeling usually refers to solving physical problems along multiple spatial or temporal scales. This definition can also be extended to include other nonorthogonal descriptive scales, to allow a hierarchical approach to accurate and efficient problem solving. Therefore, the scales proposed in this article are not the traditional scales currently used in life sciences. We deal w... View full abstract»

    It has long been an objective of the physical sciences to derive principles of biology from the laws of physics. At the angstrom scale for processes evolving on timescales of 10-14 s, many systems can be characterized in terms of atomic vibrations and collisions. In contrast, biological systems display dramatic transformations including self-assembly and reorganization from one cell phe... View full abstract»

    The limited clinical success of stem-cell injections for the treatment of myocardial infarction has been mainly attributed to the low retention and survival of injected cells. Alternative methods for improving the efficiency of cell delivery include the following: 1) injection of a mixture of bioactive hydrogels and cells followed by cell-hydrogel polymerization in situ and 2) the epicardial impla...
