    Micro-flow and Survival - The Role of Slow Flows in Biological Physics
    from 20 Apr 2015 through 24 Apr 2015

 

We will address the role of fluid flow on the micron-submicron scale, focussing on biological and micro-fluidic systems. On this scale, the fluid is extremely sticky. Surprisingly, until recently it was largely ignored. With the advent of experimental techniques that yield detail on the dynamics and forces, theoretical advances and computer simulations, we now know that this is often a very inadequate view. Micro-flows can play a key role. The workshop brings together experimentalists theoreticians and simulators to identify key areas where this effect is crucial, challenges in understanding and modelling it and how experiment and theory can better combine to this end.
