Giuseppe Pontrelli
Brief Bio
Giuseppe Pontrelli is now senior researcher at Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo of CNR in Rome. His research interests include applied mathematics and numerical analysis with application in biofluid dynamics, multiscale arterial flows, biological processes modelling , drug delivery. Over the years, he has worked on many research projects and developed mathematical models and algorithms for biology and biomedicine. Web page:


Mathematical modelling and simulation are assuming a relevant role in supporting research in medicine and biology and offers a useful tool in understanding the basic mechanism of many physiological processes. Topics range from theoretical analysis to numerical simulations of intracellular phenomena, from computational hemodynamics to simulation of cell structures and functions, from data mining to computational image analysis. This special session offers a wide overview of the different models and techniques for biological and biomedical applications: its aim is to encourage the exchange of information between theoretical and applicative fields, bringing together mathematicians, engineers, biologists in a interdisciplinary perspective and building a bridge between simulation capabilities and biotechnological demand.
