Modeling a Pacemaker Electrode in COMSOL Multiphysics®
What happens when the heart doesn’t pump the way it should? Pacemakers maintain the heart rate by monitoring natural electrical signals. Pacemaker electrodes are a key part of these devices.
Developing a Silicon MEMS Chip for On-Demand DNA Synthesis
The development of genome editing tools like CRISPR-Cas9 has increased the demand for DNA synthesis technology. Researchers are creating a DNA synthesis platform to broaden horizons in the field.
Understanding the Drug Reaction Kinetics of Nerve Guides via Modeling
Ever had a pinched nerve? Nerve guides repair this type of damaged nerve cell tissue. To design safe and reliable nerve guides, we can use simulation to understand their drug reaction kinetics.
Taking a Look at Electrochemical Treatment for Tumors via Modeling
EChT offers many benefits for the treatment and removal of cancerous tumors, so why isn’t it a widely accepted method yet? First, we need a better understanding of tumor destruction mechanisms.
Keynote Video: Simulating the Drying of Cellular Foods
How about them (dried) apples? Empa uses multiscale modeling to analyze the dehydration of soft cellular food products, such as dried fruit, and scale their processes for mass production.
Analyzing Fine Chemical Production in Plate Reactors
Batch reactors, continuous reactors, plate reactors, oh my. Here, we discuss analyzing the fine chemical production process in a plate reactor using chemical modeling.
Keynote Video: Moving Beyond Simulation for Biopharma Applications
At Amgen, researchers build simulation applications for biopharmaceutical uses, such as researching biological and synthetic drugs. Learn more in this blog post featuring their keynote talk.
Simulating Cancer Cell Migration in Microgravity with COMSOL®
