Computational biology and nanotechnology have become critical elements in particle interactions, especially in biological sciences, medicine, toxicology, and technology. Multiscale Modeling of Particle Interactions provides vital insight on particle interactions in areas of biological sciences, chemical engineering, medicine, and manufacturing technology. To better examine cell and tissue mechanics, theoretical aspects of multiscale modeling, and new developments in nanotechnology, the text includes real experimental data and images from novel optical microscopy systems. Chemists and biologists as well as clinicians and students will find this a helpful and important reference.

About Author

MICHAEL R. KING, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University. King is an expert on the receptor-mediated adhesion of circulating cells, and has developed new computational and in vitro models to study the function of leukocytes, platelets, and stem, stem and cancer cells under flow. He is a former Whitaker investigator, a James D. Watson Investigator of New York State, and an NSF CAREER Award recipient. King received the 2008 ICNMM Outstanding Researcher Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, was the 2007-2008 Professor of the Year in Engineering at the University of Rochester, and received the 2009 Outstanding Contribution for a Publication in the international journal Clinical Chemistry. DAVID J. GEE, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he studies the inflammatory response and investigates applications in receptor-mediated adhesion. Previously, Dr. Gee was a research assistant professor and postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Rochester, where he studied inflammation, and has also served as a research engineer at the Institute for Advanced Technology at The University of Texas at Austin, where he specialized in impact mechanics and computational solid mechanics.
